Supply Chain and Operations in the World of CAR-T

Supply Chain and Operations in the World of CAR-T

07/15/2020, 11:30 AM - 12:15 PM

Stage 1, Booth 1076, Exhibit Hall
CAR-T (Chimeric Antigen Receptor – T-cell) is a growing field of autologous therapies that use a patient's own immune system to help fight diseases such as cancer. These biological products are unique in that they are produced by adding chimeric antigen receptors (CARs) to a patient's T cells; the CAR can recognize and attack cells that display a target protein (antigen), including cancer cells. These therapies require a firm understanding of the requirements associated with the operations and supply chain, while having the ability the think outside the box when challenges arise. This session will focus on the challenges that are inherent to the CAR-T operations and supply chain including: coordination with treatment centers, materials management, Chain of Identity (COI), batch segregation, management of large staffs over multiple shifts, portable vs. in-place equipment, temperature control and monitoring, time sensitivity, and communication between all parties in the supply chain.
