Cell and gene therapies offer the promise of treating and altering the course of diseases which cannot be addressed adequately by existing pharmaceuticals. Cell therapies involve the transplantation of cells and are a diverse group across cell types and therapeutic indications. Cell therapies have been an active area of research for many years but are now strongly emerging through translation and towards successful commercial development and patient access. Gene therapy is a technique in development that uses genes to treat or prevent diseases such as cancer but may also be used to treat hereditary diseases in ways that have not been possible before.
