Biosimilar Gene Therapy: Investigational Assessment of Secukinumab Gene Therapy.
AbstractTumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), checkpoint inhibitors, and interleukin-17 (IL-17) are critical targets in inflammation and autoimmune diseases. Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) have a successful portfolio in the treatment of chronic diseases. With the current progress in stem cells and gene therapy technologies, there is the promise of replacing costly mAbs production in bioreactors with a more direct and cost-effective production method inside the patient's cells. In this paper we examine the results of an investigational assessment of secukinumab gene therapy.
