As of the end of July this year, the healthcare group has conducted over 600 cases of hematopoietic stem cell transplant, registered around 30 clinical trials of Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-Cell Therapy (CAR-T) and undertaken over 1,000 CAR-T treatments. The healthcare group has also published eight academic papers in key hematology journals, including Blood and Leukemia.
GoBroad Healthcare Group offers advanced services and treatments for the entire range of specialties in hematologic malignancies. Its clinical programs include the discovery and treatment of lymphoma and leukemia in adults and children and a centre dedicated to hematologic and respiratory diseases. GoBroad Medical Institute of Hematology (Beijing Centre) has successfully undertook cutting-edge treatments such as a 23-second allogeneic hematopoietic cell transplant with a survival rate of 88.7%, higher than the global average. GoBroad Medical Institute of Hematology (Guangdong Centre) has adopted the TCRαβ-T Cell Depleted Allogeneic Hematopoietic Stem Cell Transplant to largely reduce GVHD and increase the survival rate. For the first case around the world, the team successfully conducted hematopoietic cell transplant to treat a young patient suffering from Lysinuric Protein Intolerance (LPI) and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).
"At the very beginning, we saw which clinical services were in urgent need. Innovation has propelled GoBroad Healthcare Group to new heights, attracting top talent around the world," said the Mr. Zhang, CEO of GoBroad.
