Immunotherapy is a highly promising and growing market. By 2023 Immunotherapy of cancer could represent nearly 60% of treatments against less than 3% at present * and the projected market is estimated at $ 67 billion in 2018 **.
There are more than 80 autoimmune diseases that represent a significant market including major players in the pharmaceutical industry with sales upper 10 billion $ for the main products. The medical need is largely unmet and requires the provision of new innovative products involved in the regulation of the immune system.Editor's Details
