The FDA is currently overseeing 800 active applications for cell and gene therapies in immuno-oncology (IO), therapies which take advantage of patients’ immune biology to fight cancer. By 2025 they could be approving 10-20 applications each year.
The timing is impeccable, with one-fifth of global pharma sales is spent on oncology, and 40% of US adults will receive a cancer diagnosis in their lifetime. But, it also make treatment decisions more challenging for oncologists: how can a doctor best match patients to appropriate treatments?
In our new white paper, The Role of Digital Health in Immuno-oncology Therapy and Adoption, we explore both the challenges and opportunities that this golden era in cancer treatment is unlocking.
To explore the rapidly evolving immuno-oncology industry and its intersection with digital, BrightInsight spoke with executives from top biopharma companies and oncologists from leading health systems, including:
Joachim Reischl, Vice President, Head of Diagnostic Sciences, AstraZeneca, shared how his team is focused on the entire patient journey:
“We need to think about the patient journey. We should work toward treatment tools that capture the patient journey more holistically and go beyond a specific treatment modality. This may help to reduce the current fragmentation and improve the patient journey.”
