Antibody-Drug Conjugates: The 21st Century Magic Bullets for by Jeffrey Wang, Wei-Chiang Shen, Jennica L. Zaro

By Jeffrey Wang, Wei-Chiang Shen, Jennica L. Zaro

This authoritative quantity presents a holistic photograph of antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs). Fourteen accomplished chapters are divided into six sections together with an advent to ADCs, the ADC build, improvement matters, panorama, IP and pharmacoeconomics, case stories, and the way forward for the sphere. The e-book examines every little thing from the choice of the antibody, the drug, and the linker to a dialogue of developmental concerns akin to formulations, bio-analysis, pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic relationships, and toxicological and regulatory demanding situations. It additionally explores pharmacoecomonics and highbrow homes, together with lately issued patents and the associated fee research of drug remedy. Case experiences are offered for the 3 ADCs that experience bought FDA approval: gemtuzumab ozogamicin (Mylotarg®), Brentuximab vedotin (Adcetris®), and ado-trastuzumab emtansine (Kadcyla®), in addition to an ADC in late-stage medical trials, glembatumumab vedotin (CDX-011). eventually, the quantity offers a viewpoint through the editors at the destiny instructions of ADC improvement and medical purposes. Antibody-Drug Conjugates is a realistic and systematic source for scientists, professors, and scholars drawn to increasing their wisdom of state of the art examine during this fascinating field.

Example text

For oncology targets, transformed cell lines expressing the target are often readily available. These cell lines are potent immunogens for the generation of antibodies, resulting in a strong immune response in animals (Kung et al. 1979). Whole cells are complex antigens, made up of many cell-surface proteins, each a potential antigen. Thus, extensive screening is often required to generate antibodies specific for a singular antigen of interest. To reduce complexity during cell-based screening, recombinant overexpressing cell lines can be used.

Quantitative flow analysis can be useful to provide data on antigen density as the level of tumor (vs. normal) expression is an important component of target selection. For targets for which flow-compatible tools are unavailable, recombinant expression using genetic fusion to epitope tags (such as FLAG or myc) can be used. Alternatively, the target protein can be fused to green fluorescent protein and subsequently probed by microscopy. Determining whether (and to what extent) a given antigen can be shed from the cell membrane is another important consideration.

Each of the above methods relies on the immunization of rodents or other animals as a source of antibody-producing immune cells. Mice are often used for immunization due to their well-defined genetics, short generation times, and low maintenance costs. The use of knockout mouse strains that have a targeted deletion of a particular gene of interest makes it easier to raise an immune response to some protein targets that are highly conserved among species. When knockout mice are not available, rats or other species can be used to facilitate the generation of human/ mouse cross-reactive antibodies.
