The article reports on the call of the European biotechnology industry for the smooth adoption of the European Commission's Advanced Therapies Regulation. The industry is represented by EuropaBio. The new rules, which will be voted on by the European Parliament on March 13, focus on new medical techniques, including cell therapy, gene therapy and tissue engineering. The proposed regulation aims to provide a single evaluation system for advanced therapies across the European Union.
