Plasmid DNA is becoming increasingly important in clinical research for gene therapy and genetic vaccine applications. Good manufacturing practice (GMP)-grade plasmid DNA is required for direct gene transfer into humans. The same is true if the drug material contains a genetically modified cell, such as chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T cells, which are employed along with the plasmids present in the drug substance.

In many circumstances, however, high quality grade plasmid DNA is approved as a starting material for GMP synthesis of mRNA or viral vectors (lentiviral vectors, adeno-associated virus vectors, and so on). AAV (adeno associated viruses) vectors support the production of protein, leading to therapeutic effect, without permanently altering the patient’s DNA. Lentiviral vectors are retroviruses used to introduce a functional copy of a gene to the patient’s extracted hematopoietic stem cells with a longer-term therapeutic effect.

Middle East and Asia Pacific cell and gene therapy market is estimated to be valued at US$ 2,616.8 million in 2021 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 17.3% over the forecast period (2021-2028).

MIDDLE EAST AND ASIA PACIFIC CELL AND GENE THERAPY MARKET

Middle East and Asia Pacific Cell and Gene Therapy Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic – Impact on Drug Development and Clinical Trials

While the healthcare industry continues to focus on the development of COVID-19 vaccines and therapies, the COVID-19 crisis had a significant impact on clinical trials in many therapy areas such as oncology, cardiovascular, and others.

Research programs and preclinical operations have been affected across the cell and gene therapies (CGTs) sector, as pharmaceutical businesses have restricted the number of individuals working on-site to keep them safe and comply with regulatory instructions.

The increasing demand for COVID-19-related laboratory consumables such as personal protective equipment and reagents has hampered the research and preclinical development, resulting in supply chain constriction.

Cell and gene therapies (CGTs) are at the forefront of medical advancements in the treatment of serious diseases such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases, and others. Many more CGTs are currently being developed.

Middle East and Asia Pacific Cell and Gene Therapy Market: Restraint

Factor such as unfavorable reimbursement policies for cell and gene therapy products is expected to hamper the market growth over the forecast period.

Kymriah is a genetically-modified autologous T-cell immunotherapy has listed price of US$ 475,000 for patients with acute lymphocytic leukemia and US$ 373,000 for patients with large B-cell lymphoma; whereas, Yescarta has a listed price of US$ 373,000. Indicated for the treatment of adults with follicular lymphoma or certain types of large B-cell lymphoma Therefore, treatment with such a high price requires government support, in terms of reimbursement policy for a better adoption rate.

However, cell and gene therapy has witnessed multiple setbacks from regulatory authorities in charge of reimbursement policies, which is expected to hinder growth of the market.
