The future of life-changing cellular therapy begins with Dendreon
Dendreon Is the Pioneer of Innovative Cellular Therapy
Experience in developing, manufacturing and commercializing cellular therapies makes all of the difference to ensure product quality. We were the first company to successfully develop and commercialize an immunotherapy made from a patient’s own cells and worked tirelessly with the FDA to define the rules, guidance, and regulations that govern immunotherapy commercialization. This work has helped seed other cellular therapy companies, treatments, and technologies you see today.
