The Leverkusen-based firm has been touting the potential of its pharmaceutical pipeline which it hopes will be able to help soften the blow of patent expiries on the blockbusters Xarelto and Eylea in the next few years.
The investment is the latest in Bayer’s series of moves into cell and gene therapy, amid growing industry interest in CAR-NKs.
