Given the recent approval of a TCR-based therapy, industry stakeholders have initiated several R&D efforts focused on evaluating the potential of such therapy candidates against various disease indications

Roots Analysis has announced the addition of “Global TCR-based Therapy Market (2nd Edition), 2022-2035” report to its list of offerings.

Modified T-cell receptor therapy (TCR therapy) is an emerging class of adoptive therapy that employs genetically modified lymphocytes to target specific tumor markers. Growing burden and unaddressed complex treatment needs of cancer patients have paved the way for more effective, safe and versatile alternatives, such as TCR therapies. Driven by Kimmtrak® approval, promising development pipeline and encouraging clinical trial results, the TCR-based therapy market is anticipated to witness significant growth in the mid to long-term
