First FDA Approved Immunotherapy Cancer Therapy.
Production of personalized immunotherapy requires collection of patient apheresis from centers throughout the US, delivery of apheresis to the manufacturer of the immunotherapy medication and then delivery to a medical facility for infusion. Process requires extremely tight deadlines and precise planning. Often, the location of Apheresis Centers and Infusion Sites causes commercial airline flight limitations. Chain of custody critical to ensure personalized medication is delivered to the correct patient on time, temperature integrity intact. Biotech company wants to expand the life-saving therapy to more patients, however, they were restricted due to location of manufacturing centers, patient limitations and tight time frame for scheduling infusions.
