OPTIMA pharma started a cooperation with Charité and the Berlin Institute of Health

Optima Pharma and Charité – Universitätsmedizin Berlin are developing a concept for the automated production and filling of cell and gene therapeutics. These new types of medications are considered a promising new therapy opportunity for incurable cancer and metabolic diseases. They also pave the way for personalized medication. These medications depend on the patient’s cells. They are still produced manually, for each individual patient, which is very expensive. The innovative project is financed by the Berlin Institute of Health (BIH).
