  1. Making Novel Therapies A Reality Part 1
    8/9/2016

    Cell therapy, gene therapy, and RNA-based therapies. Right now, those are the classes of therapies we’re considering novel. If you look at it historically, ten years ago, recombinant proteins and monoclonal antibodies would have been novel therapies, but now they’ve become very much standardized. So now that bar has moved a little bit, and the novel therapies are really cell and gene therapies, and to a certain extent the RNA therapies.
