Landmark Bio and Galapagos have signed a multi-year strategic manufacturing agreement for the manufacture of the latter’s oncology chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy clinical programmes at the point of care.
The details of the agreement’s financial terms were not revealed.
Landmark Bio will manufacture clinical trial batches of Galapagos’ CAR-T cell therapies for haematology-oncology in compliance with Good Manufacturing Practice standards in the Boston metropolitan area, US.
The manufacturing agreement seeks to implement Galapagos’ decentralised CAR-T manufacturing model, which allows clinicians to administer CAR T-cells within a median of seven days of leukapheresis, overcoming key limitations of existing CAR-T treatments.
Landmark Bio CEO Ran Zheng stated: “We are excited to partner with Galapagos to support their CAR-T clinical development programmes in the US.
“This strategic manufacturing collaboration is a testament to our expertise in cell and gene therapy manufacturing and underscores our commitment to bring more life-saving therapies to patients faster.”
