CAR-T Cell Therapies – China In-Depth – China In-Depth: CAR T-Cell Therapy (China)

CAR T-cell therapy is a novel approach to cancer adoptive immunotherapy. The ongoing regulatory reforms, such as the breakthrough therapy designation (BTD) and priority review pathway, have inspired both domestic and foreign firms to develop advanced CAR T-cell treatments to enhance the therapeutic options available for the treatment of relapsed/refractory patients. Several CAR T-cell therapies—such as ciltacabtagene autoleucel (Nanjing Legend Biotech’s Cilta-cel), tisagenlecleucel (Novartis’s Kymriah), zevorcabtagene autoleucel (Carsgen Therapeutics’ Zevor-cel)—are expected to launch over the next ten years, establishing China as the new force in the CAR T-cell therapy field. In this report, we present a comprehensive overview of current and emerging CAR T-cell therapies, pricing and market access, physicians’ views, and future opportunities for this paradigm-shifting treatment approach.
