Leveraging Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic to Accelerate the Development and Production of Adeno-Associated Virus (AAV)-Based Gene Therapies

While there are currently over 1400 clinical cell and gene therapy programs, trial recruitment, raw material supply chains, and low-yield processes are just some of the multiple challenges facing the industry. The recent pandemic revealed that with the proper framework, a drug product can be developed, clinically tested, and produced for hundreds of millions of patients in less than a year.

  • What lessons can we apply from this effort for AAV development and production?
  • How can we rethink regulatory filing strategy?
  • And why does the cell and gene therapy arena so urgently need these learnings?
