Avoiding Catastrophe: Addressing the Supply Chain Risks in Cell and Gene Therapy Development

There is no question that the groundbreaking treatments being developed in Cell & Gene Therapy (CGT) are fundamentally changing the way patient care is managed around the world. As with most revolutionary breakthroughs in medicine or any other industry, the supply chain is critically important. These revolutionary therapies only have value if you can effectively get them to the patients, or in the case of CGT, into the patient’s vein. Furthermore, CGT treatments are extremely fragile and require weeks to develop in multiple facilities. It cannot be stressed enough that a fail-proof supply chain is necessary.

Enhanced traceability within the temperature-controlled and cold chain logistics distribution will soon be subjected to additional regulatory requirements due to the fragile aspect of the drug product and the disproportionate risk of improper cold chain management on the viability of the therapies.
