T-Cell Immunotherapies: The Goldrush Continues

The cancer therapeutics market is considered to be one of the most active segments within the pharmaceutical industry. In the past five years, the USFDA has approved more than 100 drugs for the treatment of different types of cancer. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), close to 17 million new cases of cancer were diagnosed in 2018, worldwide. By 2040, it is estimated that the aforementioned number is likely to grow to 27.5 million. In fact, the global cancer burden is anticipated to increase by 70% in the next 20 years.

I have highlighted below some of the most interesting insights from our study. You can also access additional details here.
