History in the Making: FDA approves first gene therapy in the United States

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.

New Fellowship Class!

This July we welcomed 70 new fellows to the RPIF Family. Every year our fellowship class has continued to grow, and this year is no exception. Our total number of fellows for the 2015-2016-fellowship year has expanded to 120! The majority of our fellows are located at our various partner companies within the tri-state area, however we are steadily and happily growing to different parts of the country. Since 2013 we have had a partnership with Genentech in San Francisco,California, and this year we introduced two new companies to the RPIF Program: Teva and Astra Zeneca. Our Teva Fellows are located in Horsham, Pennsylvania, while our Astra Zeneca Fellows report to work in Wilmington,Delaware and Fort Washington, Pennsylvania. We look forward to an exciting year, learning and making memorable connections!
