Antibody-drug Conjugates (ADC) Development Platform

Antibody-drug conjugates (ADC) are a new type of biological drug used for immunotherapy of cancer and other infectious diseases, which improve the targeting of the drug and reduce the toxic and side effects. Our company employs top experts to build and improve the antibody development platform, we have the ability and experience to provide global partners with one-stop antibody-drug conjugate development solutions for rare disease therapy research and development.

Overview of Antibody-drug Conjugates

Antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) consists of monoclonal antibodies, cytotoxic payloads, and molecular linkers. ADC connects biologically active cytotoxic drugs to monoclonal antibodies through linkers, and the monoclonal antibodies serve as carriers to transport the cytotoxic drugs into target cells and exert their effects.

After ADC enters into the body, the antibody partially binds to the target antigen on the surface of tumor cells, enters the cells through the endocytosis mediated by reticulin, and decomposes in the lysosomes, leading to the cleavage of intracellular linker, releasing active chemical poisons to kill cells.

Antibody-drug Conjugates for Rare Diseases

Compared with traditional humanized antibodies or antibody fragments, ADCs can release highly active cytotoxins in tumor tissues and have higher efficacy. Compared with fusion proteins, ADCs have higher tolerability and lower side effects. ADC not only has strong killing power but also combines the high targeting ability of recombinant monoclonal antibodies without affecting normal cells. Therefore, it has received widespread attention in the field of rare disease research. There are already cases of ADC being used in the research of rare diseases:

  • Gemtuzumab ozogamicin for acute myeloid leukemia
  • Brentuximab vedotin for hodgkin lymphoma
  • Inotuzumab ozogamicin for acute lymphoblastic leukemia
  • Indatuximab ravtansine for multiple myeloma
  • Anetumab ravtansine for mesothelioma
  • Depatuxizumab mafodotin for glioblastoma
