Advanced Cell Therapy Centre
Our Advanced Cell Therapy Centre researches, develops and manufactures new cell therapy products for use in healthcare. In 2019, we provided mesenchymal stromal cell products (LY-MSC) to six patients for the treatment of immunological problems in the stem cell transplant units at Helsinki and Turku University Central Hospitals. We also continued manufacturing modified haploidentical stem cell grafts for paediatric patients.
We published four scientific publications, by ourselves and in collaboration with the University of Helsinki, Barcelona Blood Bank as well as research groups from Canada and the United States. Our new initiatives included projects to produce cell therapy products for the treatment of refractory cancers, a NK cell product, and a CAR T cell product.
