HLA’s future impact on allogeneic cell therapy development

Allogeneic cell therapies are inherently complex. But they also hold the potential to scale to treat large segments of the population. Martin Maiers, MS, is the Vice President of Innovation at the National Marrow Donor Program® (NMDP)/Be The Match®. He and his team develop software and analytical methods used to predict factors that can impact…

HLA matching could bring more allogeneic cell therapies to market, faster

The emergence of novel cell therapy technologies has led to questions about the necessity of human leukocyte antigen matching (HLA matching) in the development of potential “universal” allogeneic cell therapies. After all, if you can eliminate alloreactive responses, what role would HLA matching play? Martin Maiers, MS, is the Vice President of Biomedical Informatics for…
