2018 Gene Therapy in Oncology - There is a Significant Opportunity for Developing Combination Regimens -


The "Gene
Therapy in Oncology"
report has been added to's

Currently only small size biotech and pharmaceutical companies dominate
the pipeline for cancer gene therapies. With J&J having the exclusive
worldwide rights to develop and commercialize Geron's imetelstat and
AstraZeneca the only large pharmaceutical company with an in-house gene
therapy in late stage clinical development; Merck & Co. and BMS are
evaluating their respective in-house CPI therapies with many of the
Phase II and III candidates in the cancer gene therapy pipeline.

KOLs see a huge potential for cancer gene therapies, particularly in
combination with immune CPIs. To this end, there is a significant
opportunity for developing combination regimens as half of the Phase III
pipeline is evaluated as a monotherapy and only one candidate is
evaluated in combination with a CPI in their pivotal studies.
