The Food and Drug Administration on Wednesday approved the first gene therapy treatment for cancer, green-lighting Novartis Pharmaceuticals’ cell therapy treatment for childhood leukemia. The regulatory approval had been widely expected but came earlier than analysts’ predictions. It signals that other drug companies developing cell-therapy treatments may also be able to commercialize what medical experts say is a revolutionary new form of medicine. The therapy extracts a patient’s cells from his or her blood, sends them to a manufacturing site to genetically modify them, and then re-infuses them into the person’s body to attack cancer cells.

The Commission said back in July that it was in favor of the deal, but on the condition that Telefnica, which already owns Germany's O2, sell 30 percent of the merged carrier's network capacity to amobile virtual network operator (MVNO). This was because, without such a condition, Germany would only be left with three carriers with physical networks - not a competition-friendly scenario.
