Cellular therapy is a treatment where living cells are infused into patients for medical purposes. These medical purposes include repair/replacement of damaged cells and tissues or treatment for various diseases. Cellular therapies can be autologous (cells that originate from the patient) or allogeneic (cells that originate from a donor). Currently most cellular therapies are still in the early stages of development, however the most established cell therapies including bone marrow/stem cell transplants and CART (chimeric antigen receptor T-cell therapy) have already been in clinical service for many years.
The Cellular Therapy programme at NCIS is the first programme in Asia to be FACT accredited for the IEC (immune effector cell) therapy. The programme is comprehensive; it treats both adult and children. We can manage patients from cell collection, manufacturing to cell infusion in one location.
