autologous cell therapy

Monday 17 October 2011

There are two general classes of cell therapy approaches to treat patients.

First, cells may be harvested from a patient and treated or expanded and introduced back into the same patient. This patient-specific, or autologous, method has historically been favored due to the lack of required immunologic matching.

A second approach involves the harvesting of cells from one, or a few, universal donors followed by large scale expansion and banking of multiple doses (see "allogeneic cell therapy").
