The Chinese University of Hong Kong (CUHK) will commence clinical trials of Chimeric antigen receptor-T cell (CAR-T cell) therapy, with the first phase targeting patients with haematological malignancy. The plan is to increase the survival rate and prolong overall survival for these patients. To accomplish this goal, CUHK is planning to establish Hong Kong’s first CAR-T cell laboratory licensed with Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP). It is expected to complete construction in 2020 and start clinical trials once the GMP licence is obtained. The research team hopes the therapy can further cover patients with other cancer types in the future.
