Four Ways to Show Nonobviousness of ADC Inventions

As research continues to progress and the scientific community’s appreciation for the power of ADCs has grown, so have the numbers. FDA has now approved at least four ADCs, and hundreds more are in development. The number of patent applications has also grown, with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) publishing over two hundred patent applications with claims to ADC inventions in the last two years alone.

ADCs – The Dawn of a New Era?

Two decades ago, ADCs were hailed as a major breakthrough, especially in the area of oncology therapeutics. The concept of delivering a potent drug payload directly to the site of the tumor for maximum effect with minimal damage caused to non-cancerous cells was viewed as, if not the Holy Grail of cancer treatment, at least a significant advance towards precision medicine. However, the concept has proved difficult to translate into clinical success.
