ATMP companies in Sweden

The vast majority of Swedish companies are developing Gene Therapy Medicinal Products (GTMP). However, keep in mind that cells that are genetically modified in-vitro and then delivered to a patient are classified as ex-vivo GTMPs not sCTMPs. Check out our What are ATMPs page to see why some ATMP technologies may be classified as sCTMP, GTMP or TEP. There are Swedish companies developing gene therapies based on synthetic oligonucleotides but these are not classified as ATMPs.

Swedish ATMP immunotherapies

The main ATMP immunotherapies being developed in Sweden are based on Natural Killer (NK) cells, Dendritic Cells (DCs) and T-cells. Probably the most well known is CAR-Ts, based on T-cells. However, Sweden is a world leader in NK cell research and product development. KI researchers not only discovered NK cells in the mid-70s but also discovered their ability to identify tumour cells in the 80s. Exciting possibilities are also being developed using Dendritic Cells which represent the interface between the Adaptive and Innate immune systems.
