The FDA approved Kymriah (tisagenlecleucel) today, a cell-based gene therapy, that has produced unprecedented results in patients with Acute Lymphocytic Leukemia (ALL). The Novartis therapy is approved for pediatric and young adult patients up to 25 years old with B-cell precursor ALL that is refractory or in second or later relapse.
Kymriah is a genetically-modified autologous T-cell immunotherapy. Each dose is a customized treatment created using an individual patient’s own T-cells. The patient’s T-cells are collected and sent to a manufacturing center where they are genetically modified to include a new gene that contains a specific protein (a chimeric antigen receptor or CAR) that directs the T-cells to target and kill leukemia cells that have a specific antigen (CD19) on the surface. Once the cells are modified, they are infused back into the patient to kill the cancer cells.
The price tag is $475,000 for a course of treatment - and analysts say it's a bargain.
The Rutgers Pharmaceutical Industry Fellowship Program is an industry-based training program which partners with the leading pharmaceutical and bio-pharmaceutical companies. The program is designed for individuals with a Doctorate of Pharmacy to further their experience in the pharmaceutical industry through work experience and clinical research.
