Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products

Supporting you from discovery to therapy, matching expertise, reducing risk.

Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products (ATMP) represent a new category of medicines with a wide therapeutic potential for treating different types of diseases such as cancer, neurode­generative and cardiovascular diseas­es. They include Gene Therapy Medicinal Products (GTMP), Cell Therapy Medicinal Products (CTMP), and Tissue Engineered Products (TEP). Clinical application of the two latter types is frequently referred to as ‘Regenerative Medicine’.
