Emerging Technology Reports

The Emerging Technology Report provides regular updates about emerging and potentially disruptive technologies that are likely to have a significant impact in healthcare. This “early warning” report monitors new health technologies from 6 months to 2 years within a regulatory submission and tracks those as they go through clinical trial development and the regulatory approval process.

For each emerging technology, our analysts describe the technology and intended use, its prospects relative to the regulatory process and FDA information, competing technologies, relevant clinical guidelines, high-level look at the evidence such as published abstracts in the medical literature and available meeting abstracts, and available clinical trials.

Givlaari (Givosiran) for Acute Hepatic Porphyria

Givlaari is a subcutaneously administered ribonucleic acid interference (RNAi) agent that inhibits delta-aminolevulinate synthase 1 (ALAS1) synthesis, a key regulator of the heme biosynthetic pathway in the liver. Givlaari is believed to reduce ALAS1 levels, thereby decreasing delta-aminolevulinic acid (ALA) and porphobilinogen (PBG) levels. Decreasing ALA and PBG levels to n…

Lisocabtagene Maraleucel for Large B-Cell Lymphoma

Lisocabtagene maraleucel (liso-cel) is an investigational, autologous chimeric antigen receptor (CAR) T-cell therapy, a novel type of immunotherapy in which a patient’s own immune cells are genetically re-programmed to target and attack cancer cells. It is proposed to treat adults with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma after at least 2 prior therapies. This patient…

Remestemcel-L for Acute Graft-Versus-Host Disease

Remestemcel-L is an allogeneic liquid cell suspension of ex-vivo cultured adult human mesenchymal stem cells derived from healthy donor bone marrow proposed for the treatment of pediatric patients with acute graft-versus-host-disease (aGVHD) refractory to standard first-line steroid therapy.
