NMDP BioTherapies to Present Data at ISCT 2024 on the Stability of Infectious Disease Marker Analytes During Donor Qualification for Allogeneic Cell Therapies

Study in conjunction with investigators from Labor Quade and the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine analyzed the longer-term stability of IDM analytes in uncentrifuged peripheral blood samples to allow for increased flexibility in donor sample processing. Study results indicate that broad use of blood processing parameters developed for the measure of metabolites appears to create…

International regulations for allogeneic cell source material

When you procure cellular starting material or distribute a cell or gene therapy product across international borders, you must consider the country or regional regulatory requirements at play and where they diverge. Allogeneic cell therapy sponsors face common challenges when treating a global patient population with therapies using healthy adult donor starting material.

Effect of rapid cell therapy growth on collection capacity

The rapid growth of the cell and gene therapy industry is a positive for patients. However, it comes with increasing demand for high-quality cellular source material collected at apheresis centers. Managing collection capacity impacts from this growth requires understanding challenges from the perspective of the apheresis center and collaboration across the industry to develop solutions.
