Partial remission was observed in 10. Instil said that four patients reported stable disease. A total of 10 patients have since died from complications that arose as their disease progressed.
Instil Bio says that the challenge of manufacturing TIL therapy has limited its use. Where do you see a potential breakthrough in this area, considering that Instil will spend $150m to develop its proprietary process to cryopreserve surgically removed tissue at a regional hub close to a clinical site, shipping samples to one of two Instil manufacturing sites, in Manchester and Los Angeles.Added By: slingshot_insights
