The American Society of Gene and Cell Therapy (ASGCT) defines cell therapy as a therapeutic modality that involves the administration of either normal or modified cells to patients for the treatment of various diseases.


In this form of therapy, patients are injected with living and intact human cells that are deemed to be capable of providing therapeutic benefit. It is worth mentioning that such transplanted cells have been shown to restore or repair the cells that are damaged or have ceased functioning due to diseased condition. The main goal of cell therapy is to target the root cause of the disease at a cellular level. It is also worth highlighting that there are a significant number of cell therapies that are currently under clinical development.
