DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 23, 2018--The "Gene Therapy in Oncology" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

Currently only small size biotech and pharmaceutical companies dominate the pipeline for cancer gene therapies. With J&J having the exclusive worldwide rights to develop and commercialize Geron's imetelstat and AstraZeneca the only large pharmaceutical company with an in-house gene therapy in late stage clinical development; Merck & Co. and BMS are evaluating their respective in-house CPI therapies with many of the Phase II and III candidates in the cancer gene therapy pipeline.

KOLs see a huge potential for cancer gene therapies, particularly in combination with immune CPIs. To this end, there is a significant opportunity for developing combination regimens as half of the Phase III pipeline is evaluated as a monotherapy and only one candidate is evaluated in combination with a CPI in their pivotal studies.
