Partnering for progress in personalized medicine with CAR T-Cell therapies

CAR T-cell therapies have become an exciting new treatment path in treating advanced leukemias and lymphomas as well as multiple myeloma. Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cell therapy, or simply CAR-T, is a type of immunotherapy that adapts T cells from your immune system to fight cancer. What makes CAR-T special is the drug is specific to the patient instead of using the same medication across the entire patient population. As a result, the RTSM design needs to adapt to this method to make the medication and ordering process patient-specific.

Join us for a dynamic presentation as Janssen and 4G Clinical share insights from their collaborative journey. Together, they have partnered on several clinical trials and have created standards, supporting the advancement of personalized medicine management and the secure encryption of
