Our focus is to expand and advance our robust T‑cell immunotherapy pipeline, manufacturing expertise and global commercial capabilities in anticipation of the announcement of the first tab-cel™ Phase 3 results and submission of an EU conditional marketing authorization application for tab-cel™, both expected in the first half of 2019.
