The Highs, Lows, and Resurgence of Antibody-drug Conjugates

Antibody drug conjugates (ADCs) offer a way to deliver a cytotoxic or an immuno-stimulatory payload directly to tumors to maximize the anti-tumor efficacy of the payload with reduced systemic toxicities. The development of ADCs has occurred over several decades. ADCs have been through several highs and lows where there was substantial excitement for the promise ADCs hold only to be followed by disinterest when there were disappointing results in the clinic. This resulted in several companies abandoning their internal ADC development efforts. Twelve ADCs globally have been approved to treat hematologic or solid tumors. The renewed interest in ADCs, is due, in part, to the recent clinical success of ADCs, the development of improved ADC technologies, and the identification of new ADC targets.

RemeGen’s RC88 Receives US FDA Fast Track Designation

The United States Food and Drug Administration has granted Fast Track Designation for China-based RemeGen's RC88, a mesothelin (MSLN)-targeting antibody-drug conjugate (ADC). The investigational drug is intended for the treatment of patients diagnosed with platinum-resistant recurrent epithelial ovarian, fallopian tube, and primary peritoneal cancers.

Over the past decade, site-specific chemical conjugation has emerged as a promising strategy to produce antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) in the field of oncology [1]. Daiichi-Sankyo's chemical conjugation method, which uses high drug-to-antibody ratio (DAR) technology, was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration as the first site-specific ADC (fam-trastuzumab-deruxtecan-nxki; Enhertu® | Daiichi Sankyo and AstraZeneca).

Using AI in the Development of Novel ADCs: Lantern Pharma and...

Lantern Pharma has signed a research collaboration with Bielefeld University for the development of novel antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) with high therapeutic and anti-tumor potential. The partners will be using Lantern's proprietary Response Algorithm for Drug Positioning and Rescue (RADR®) artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) platform , to rapidly develop novel cryptophycin-antibody drug conjugates (ADCs), which represent an exciting class of potent and highly targeted drug candidates.

Shanghai-based biopharmaceutical company Antengene, confirmed that ATG-022, a Claudin 18.2 (CLDN18.2) antibody drug conjugate (ADC) being developed by the company, has been granted two Orphan Drug Designations (ODD) consecutively by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of gastric cancer and pancreatic cancer. 

Accelerating Biologics R&D with Unified Software and Data Flows

Biologics are changing the way we treat disease, affecting where companies invest, and, most importantly, impacting patients’ lives. Last year, nearly half of the 37 new drugs approved by the U.S. Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER) were biologics, while its partner agency—the U.S. [1] Center for Biologics Evaluation and Research (CBER)—approved a dozen additional products. [2] These approvals span many modalities and cover a range of conditions, including many rare and hard-to-treat diseases.
