Important Regulatory & Operational Considerations when Sourcing Cellular Starting Materials & Ancillary Products for Cell Therapy Development & Commercialization



January 16, 2024

  • Expert Roundtable with Matthew Chorley, Dr. Parijat Jain & Wini Luty Important considerations should be taken in the selection of a manufacturer to source Leukocytes/Cellular starting materials and related ancillary products. Manufacturers must be GMP/GTP compliant and capable of sourcing RUO and GMP materials to allow an efficient path for ATMPs to move through the clinical pipeline and be approved for commercial use. The FDA has promulgated a particular set of regulations, referred to as GTPs, that specifically address the need to procure and process tissues in a manner that avoids transmission of a communicable disease. GTPs and GMPs must be followed for cell-based advanced therapies or tissue-based therapy products. Key takeaways: - Why is it so important to have a dedicated supplier with recallable donors that is compliant with GTPs and GMPs? - What are the costs and time delays of switching suppliers later in clinical development? - Can a manufacturer of a cell or gene therapy switch suppliers midstream in clinical development? - How will not having a GMP supplier impact the speed a therapy gets to market? Hear from our team of experts as they share their unique insights on these important topics in a roundtable style discussion.
