La Merie Release: Antibody-Drug Conjugates 2011 - Real Breakthrough Still to Come
Results of early stage clinical trials of a number of ADC projects promise anti-tumor activity in hematologic malignancies as well as in solid tumors, but also dose-limiting toxicities which still narrow the therapeutic window for the currently used drugs and linkers. Nevertheless, about half of the currently clinical stage ADC projects entered clinical development within the last year indicating a high interest in the industry which also is reflected by the numerous licensing deals of the technology providers with pharmaceutical and biotech companies. The attrition rate of ADC development projects so far is well within the rate in oncology, or even better. However, ADC technologies still can be improved and candidates are emerging but need more time for validation and maturation. These results and more were found in the search conducted by La Merie. The report can be acquired at La Merie’s online store (www.pipelinereview.com).
