Clinical-stage Pyxis Oncology, a company focused on developing antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) and immune-oncology (IO) therapeutics to target difficult-to-treat cancers, is prioritizing the development of their investigational ADC, PYX-201, a novel first-in-concept and first-in-class tumor stroma targeting ADC. Phase 1 trial progressing with fifth dose cohort at 3.6 mg/kg; data expected 1H 2024.
Tisotumab Vedotin Significantly Prolongs Overall Survival in Patients with Recurrent/Metastatic Cervical...
Results today from the Phase 3 innovaTV 301 randomized global trial, which showed treatment with tisotumab vedotin (Tivdak®; Seagen/Genmab)* demonstrated a statistically significant and clinically meaningful 30% reduction in the risk of death in recurrent or metastatic cervical cancer patients with disease progression on or after front-line therapy, compared with chemotherapy (HR: 0.70, 95% CI: 0.54-0.89, p=0.0038).
The past few years saw significant progress in the treatment of cancer and hematological malignancies through antibody-druf conjugates (ADCs), with numerous approvals and positive...
In a statement earlier today, Lonza, a global manufacturing partner to the pharmaceutical, biotech and nutraceutical markets, confirmed that it has acquired Netherlands-based Synaffix, a biotechnology company focused on commercializing its clinical-stage technology platform for the development of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs).
Japanese drugmaker Eisai & Co and Chinese drug developer Bliss Biopharmaceutical (Hangzhou) Co., have entered into a joint development agreement to further develop BB-1701, an antibody-drug conjugate (ADC). As part of the agreement Eisai & Co obtained option rights for a strategic collaboration.
Mirvetuximab Soravtansine Demonstrates Overall Survival Benefit in FRα-Positive Platinum-Resistant Ovarian Cancer
Positive top-line data from the Phase 3 confirmatory MIRASOL trial (NCT04209855; GOG 3045/ENGOT OV-55) evaluating the safety and efficacy of mirvetuximab soravtansine-gynx compared to chemotherapy in patients with folate receptor alpha (FRα)-positive platinum-resistant ovarian cancer who have received one to three prior lines of therapy.
Cancer-specific plectin (CSP), a pro-tumorigenic protein selectively expressed on the cell surface of major cancers, is a potentially promising target for the development of novel antibody-drug conjugates (ADC).
Antibody-drug conjugates or ADCs are a class of biopharmaceutical drugs designed as a targeted therapy for treating cancer (and potentially other diseases). However, unlike chemotherapy, ADCs are intended to directly target and kill tumor cells while, at the same time sparing normal, healthy cells.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Fast Track Designation to DB-1303 a novel antibody-drug conjugates for the treatment of patients with advanced, recurrent or metastatic endometrial carcinoma with HER2 over-expression who have progressed on or after standard systemic treatment.
At the 2022 World ADC Conference in San Diego, Stewart Mitchell, Executive Vice President and site head of Sterling Pharma Solutions' Deeside, U.K. facility, presented a case study on the development and GMP manufacture at the site.
