New York Times bestselling author and former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb provides a glimpse of a promising future that is quickly approaching: a world with cures for chronic illnesses and cancers.

While traditional drugs mostly help us manage the effects of disease, cell therapies promise genuine cures for a broad range of intractable ailments, from Alzheimer’s to heart damage to cancer. They could even reverse the effects of aging. For the first time in history, on an unprecedented scale, we possess the power to modify the biology that gives rise to disease, ultimately restoring individuals to a state of normalcy and reversing debilitating ailments.

In The Miracle Century, former FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb traces the scientific achievements that propelled progress in cell therapies. The birth of this medical revolution wasn’t a sudden event. Rather, it emerged from decades of steady, incremental progress in science. These concerted advances made cell therapies a reality. To forge a path for continued medical breakthroughs, Dr. Gottlieb meticulously traces this scientific journey, identifying lessons on how these achievements can be replicated.

The MIracle Century is a look at the future of healthcare from one of the nation’s leading medical authorities. Scott Gottlieb explains how these new medicines are moving from the laboratory bench to the marketplace and tackles the issues that must be addressed to enable wide adoption of these treatments and transform as many lives as possible.
