For the final piece in their series of articles for Cell & Gene, Walter Colasante, Pascale Diesel, and Lev Gerlovin address the new commercialization strategies being developed for gene and cell therapies. These new therapies offer great promise for patients and industry professionals alike, but with this promise comes with the potential to increase risk and cost, thus potentially limiting prospects for sustainable commercial success.
