ADSCC marks a milestone in medical innovation

Dr Yendry Ventura, CEO of ADSCC, said the success in creating CAR-T therapy in Abu Dhabi marks a momentous leap in their commitment to making a profound impact on a regional level. With the support of UAE’s leadership and the Department of Health – Abu Dhabi, they aim to revolutionise perceptions of cancer treatment by pushing the limits of what can be achieved through cell therapy.

CAR-T cell therapy has long been a monopoly of foreign pharmaceutical companies and has been an approved treatment in the US since 2017. Due to its difficulty and sensitivity of manufacturing, its accessibility has been limited in the region. The launch of such an advanced technology in the country solidifies the UAE’s position as a global destination for medical advancements and research.
