Cell Therapy: cGMP Facilities and Manufacturing
Edited by Adrian Gee, MIBiol, PhD

Cell Therapy: cGMP Facilities and Manufacturing is the source for a complete discussion of facility design and operation with practical approaches to a variety of day-to-day activities, such as staff training and competency, cleaning procedures, and environmental monitoring. This in-depth book also includes detailed reviews of quality, the framework of regulations, and professional standards. It meets a previously unmet need for a thorough facility-focused resource, Cell Therapy: cGMP Facilities and Manufacturing will be an important addition to the cell therapy professional’s library.

This volume contains a collection of chapters authored by individuals who are active in the field of cell therapy product manufacturing. The collection and editing of these chapters was supported in part by the National Institutes of Health (National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute) program Production Assistance for Cellular Therapies (PACT).

Core Principles in Cellular Therapy, 18th edition

This handy text provides a focused look at hematopoietic and nonhematopoietic cellular therapy that will be useful to those working on the periphery as well as the mainstream of this exciting field. Written by experts, these chapters excerpted from the AABB Technical Manual, 18th edition, were also peer-reviewed by AABB cellular therapy committee and subsection members. Together, these chapters capture what is essential to know about cellular therapy and regenerative medicine—for example, new advances in induced pluripotent stem cells, mesenchymal stem cells, adipose-derived stem cells— as well as more established cellular therapy products.

Cellular Therapy: Principles, Methods, and Regulations
Edited by Ellen M. Areman, MS, SBB(ASCP), and Kathy Loper, MHS, MT(ASCP)

The Manual was designed as a compendium of state-of-the-art practices and methods for cellular therapy to aid in the development and operation of a clinical cellular therapy facility. Designed for those in academia, government and industry, it is also an essential reference for those in regulatory affairs and quality assurance as well as for laboratory technologists, managers, directors, physicians and scientists. Through descriptions of the rationale and methodology for a variety of cell processing and evaluation techniques, it will assist laboratory staff in developing procedures that comply with applicable regulations and standards. In addition to numerous examples and templates for laboratory document preparation, several methods are provided that include a general overview of the critical steps, materials and equipment used in each process. Each section has been compiled and edited by a team of experts in the field, with subchapters contributed by specialists in the specific subject matter. Also included is a fully searchable CD-ROM with appendices on Methods and Forms in Word format so they can be fully customized.
