They are expected to play a crucial role in supporting the growth and success of the cell and gene therapy industry, making QC an integral part of the development and commercialization of these advanced therapies.
Impact of COVID-19
In December 2019, Wuhan, a city in the Hubei region of China, was the site of the first detection of the COVID-19 outbreak. Following the classification of COVID-19 as novel pneumonia due to a cluster of unexplained pneumonia cases, efforts to pinpoint the culprit causing the outbreak and outline its genomic sequence got underway right once. The virus has already spread to every country on the globe, and researchers, governments, and business leaders are working to find answers to the crisis at a scale and speed that has never been seen. Testing for SARS-CoV-2 in the populace is one of the main steps that has been put into place globally, among many other measures used to stop the spread of the disease. The most crucial benefit of testing is that it offers evidence of illness, enabling those who are tested and those they have come into contact with to take the required precautions, including quarantining, to minimize community exposure.
The COVID-19 pandemic has substantially interrupted social, economic, and political activity around the world due to its unparalleled size and intensity. As a result, the cell and gene therapy (CGT) sector, which has historically struggled with tremendous complexity in the supply of materials, production, and logistical operations, has been disrupted by COVID-19.
The research, production, clinical development, and market introduction of cell and gene-based therapies (CGTs) for diseases unrelated to COVID-19 have all been significantly disrupted as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. A lack of manufacturing material supplies, challenges with clinical studies, and a delay in the creation of regulatory dossiers are all significant reasons for the manufacturing of cell and gene therapy. This has emphasized the significance of tackling the difficulties in CGTs' supply chain and production to increase resilience during the crisis.
To prevent CGTs' market access from being significantly disrupted, manufacturing resilience, digitalization, telemedicine, value-based pricing, and creative payment systems may be progressively tapped.
