Gene Therapy in Oncology


Unlike conventional treatments such as chemotherapy, gene therapy combines reduced treatment duration (one time treatment in some cases) with higher chances of cure in oncology. This novel therapeutic approach requires direct delivery of genetic material to the patient or in vitro genetic modification of patient cells and subsequent delivery to the patient, which is an uncharted territory in oncology and will necessitate the implementation of new regulatory guidelines and restructuring of the existing treatment algorithms in various oncology indications. In this report, GlobalData provides an overview of the current competitive landscape of gene therapies in multiple oncology indications, the regulatory framework concerning their clinical development and commercialization in the 8MM (US, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, UK, Japan, and China). In addition, the report covers in detail the late stage clinical development of cancer gene therapies in the 8MM, providing key opinion leader (KOL) insight on the impact of cancer gene therapies in various treatment paradigms in the oncology space as well as payer perspective on the cost and reimbursement of novel cancer gene therapies.
