About this Research Topic
Despite numerous breakthroughs in basic science, and continuous efforts to translate these discoveries into patients’ clinical benefits, only a handful of advanced therapy medicinal products (ATMPs) have been approved in the past decade. Among those approved, about a third have been pulled from the market and only few have reached appropriate commercial market penetration.
This Research Topic aims to discuss:
(1) key challenges that have hindered the successful translation and commercialisation of ATMPs,
(2) emerging concepts and incentives that fuel the up-and-coming novel ATMPs,
(3) learnings and new ideas that could boost more successes, and
(4) perspectives on key trends that highlight the medium-term evolution of the field of gene-based and cell-based therapies.
