Stem cell-based medicine: where are we headed?
Ground reality on Science, Manufacturing, Patient need and Outcome
Stem cells and its therapeutic derivatives are striving to be a first-in- class medicine. Living cells have now become the active pharmaceutical ingredients (APIs) and hold a regular share in the pharmaceutical and biotech innovation and delivery pipelines. Critically ill patients left with nearly no other options are often pinning their last hopes on infusions of these fascinating stem cells. Are these cells and the science behind them capable of delivering the promise? How close are we in realizing the immense potential of stem cells?
