Dendritic Cell (DC) based immunotherapy has tremendous potential to improve the lifespan of cancer affected people across the globe, especially in a developing country like ours. Realising the great potential of DC therapy in the field of Oncology, APAC Biotech (P) Ltd. was established at Gurgaon. We have come a long way since starting our journey in 2010. Continuing the fine traditions of dendritic cell research, our laboratory offers arguably the best formulation in the field of cancer treatment for real world impact, based on a foundation of excellence in research. The research activities at the lab cover a wide spectrum of activities, including dendritic cell research to develop a formulation for the treatment of cancer patients. After our concerted efforts on research and approvals from leading hospitals across India we initiated the in vitro studies followed by trials in 2011 and since then there has been no looking back. We believe that in today’s world true innovation has to be open, collaborative, global and multi-disciplinary. We work closely with leading oncologists, specialized medical advisors, research organizations, hospitals and regulatory bodies. Taking collaborative innovation to the next level we have come up with a new research study in Recombinant Proteins. With respect to medical research and development in the country, we deal with unique challenges that we face in our day-to-day operations such as lack of awareness, inadequate parallel infrastructure, scalability, logistics support, price sensitivity and regulatory challenges to name a few and target innovative solutions that have the potential to enable leapfrogging and be applied to the rest of the world. We are spreading our wings by undertaking research activities and initiatives to explore the potential use of DC therapy towards cure of multiple diseases which has kept the medical fraternity incapacitated for several years for the lack of treatment and aspire to become a leading research Laboratory in India offering therapies to such medical conditions. These activities are largely directed towards two major focus areas, research and breakthrough solutions for potentially hazardous diseases. Our focus areas are derived from the dynamics of the unique environment in India, which is fast emerging as a Global Medical Tourism destination and has become a major centre for medical services globally, beyond being poised as becoming one of the largest economies in the world. As we see the world going through rapid changes, the opportunity for research has never been better. We at APAC Biotech, with its best-of-class scientist / researchers and an enviable culture of innovation are helping build a better world for all of us – cancer patients & their families, our partners, our employees and the communities we work with. We invite you to join us in this exciting journey….
