9:40 am Designing Effective Antibody-Drug Conjugates: What Have We Learned in Forty Years & What Are the Future Prospects

  • John Lambert Executive Vice President, Emeritus & Distinguished Fellow, Immunogen

Synopsis

  • Effective exploitation of antibodies for treating cancer required many lessons to be learned and technologies to be developed in the 1980s and 1990s
  • Since Mylotarg’s approval in 2000, major advances in antibody-drug conjugate technologies were pioneered by ImmunoGen, Inc., and Seattle Genetics, leading to the approvals of Kadcyla and Adcetris
  • With many “tools in the toolbox”, development of ADCs for cancer treatment has a promising future

10:10 am Development of a New TROP-2 ADC with Better Therapeutic Window

  • Hui Lu Chief Executive Officer, Levena Biopharma

Synopsis

  • TROP has emerged as an appealing target for ADC development
  • Tackling the unique challenge for a target with larger tissue distribution and utilization of weaker payload
  • Witnessing how novel ADC design has achieved better linker stability, which has greatly reduced ADC toxicity and improved therapeutic window
