Dr. June said that producing engineered T-cells costs about $20,000 per
patient — far less than the cost of a bone-marrow transplant. Scaling up
the procedure should make it even less expensive, he said, but he added,
“Our costs do not include any profit margin, facility depreciation costs or
other clinical care costs, and other research costs.”
