On March 5, 2020, the Department of Science and Technology of Guangdong Province issued the Notice of the Department of Science and Technology of Guangdong Province on Identifying the Engineering Technology Research Center of Guangdong Province in 2019, which was established by Pregene and jointly built by Shenzhen Children 's Hospital of Guangdong Lewwin.



Shenzhen PREGENE, which has been ploughing into the cell and gene therapy industry for years, has been successively recognized as a national high-tech enterprise and Zhongguancun high-tech enterprise, and its main research topic in this industry is CAR-T cell drugs (chimeric antigen receptor T cell drugs) and TCR-T cell drugs (T cell receptor T cell drugs) for the treatment of tumors. At present, two cell and gene therapy drugs for the treatment of cancer have submitted and accepted the application for registered clinical trial (IND) to China Food and Drug Administration according to national Class I new drugs. BCMA CART cell drugs for the treatment of multiple myeloma have shown the efficacy in the carried out non-registered clinical trials to reach the international leading level.
