Description - Guide to Cell Therapy GxP by Joaquim Vives
Guide to Cell Therapy GxP is a practical guide to the implementation of quality assurance systems for the successful performance of all cell-based clinical trials. The book covers all information that needs to be included in investigational medicinal product dossier (IMPD), the launching point for any clinical investigation, and beyond. Guide to Cell Therapy GxP bridges a knowledge gap with the inclusion of examples of design of GLP-compliant preclinical studies; design of bioprocesses for autologous/allogeneic therapies; and instruction on how to implement GLP/GMP standards in centers accredited with other quality assurance standards. Guide to Cell Therapy GxP is an essential resource for scientists and researchers in hospitals, transfusion centers, tissue banks, and other research institutes who may not be familiar with the good scientific practice regulations that were originally designed for product development in corporate environments. This book is also a thorough resource for PhD students, Post-docs, Principal Investigators, Quality Assurance Units, and Government Inspectors who want to learn more about how quality standards are implemented in public institutions developing cell-based products.

Six years ago, he became Head of Preclinical Studies at XCELIA, a biopharmaceutical company formed from The Catalan Blood and Tissue Service (Banc de Sang i Teixits) devoted to the development of advanced therapy medicine. As the Quality manager at XCelia, Dr. Vives secured the facility as the first GLP-compliant laboratory in Spain dedicated to the development of advanced cell therapies. He is now Director of R&D, responsible for technology transfer of innovative experimental bioprocesses into GMP-compliant production environments. He also manages GLP test facilities and relationships with Health Regulatory Agencies among other compliance responsibilities. Dr. Carmona is a Pharmacist with experience in management and training. She also holds a Masters Degree in Manufacturing of Advanced Therapy Medicinal Products and has worked across Europe in the biotechnology sector training on quality systems and good manufacturing practices in advanced therapies medicinal products. She has been a Quality Assessment Manager and GMP facilities Manager from the inception of the Andalusian Initiative for Advanced Therapies in October 2008. Previously, she worked worked as Quality Assessment and Accreditation Manager in the Andalusian Program for Cell Therapy and Regenerative Medicine.
