The market players in the immunotherapy drugs market are actively seeking collaborations and partnerships for the development of novel immunotherapy drugs. For instance, in April 2018, Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (BMS) and Illumina Inc. collaborated to utilize Illumina’s next-generation sequencing (NGS) technology to develop and globally commercialize in-vitro diagnostic (IVD) assays in support of BMS oncology portfolio. The collaboration helped to develop a diagnostic version of Illumina’s TruSight Oncology 500 assay, including tumor mutation burden (TMB), and microsatellite instability for immunotherapies.

Similarly, in April 2018, Pfizer Inc. and Allogene Therapeutics Inc. entered into an asset contribution agreement to use Pfizer’s portfolio related to allogeneic CAR-T therapy, an investigational immune cell therapy, for cancer. This agreement acted as an attractive opportunity for Pfizer Inc. to continue the development of CAR-T therapy.
