Developing therapeutic monoclonal antibodies and ADC's is a key focus of the pharmaceutical industry's R&D. The European Antibody Congress 2012 bought together senior level executives and opinion leaders from around the globe to further their knowledge and engage in discussion on a variety of topics relating to mAbs, ADC's and bispecifics. Attendees at this highly successful event were fortunate enough to hear this exciting presentation delivered by Achim Knappik, Head of R&D, AbD Serotec, âHighly specific antibodies binding to therapeutic drugs – new tools for assay development'.
This presentation focuses on:
Â· Use of HuCAL PLATINUM to generate antibodies for drug discovery and development
Â· Development of fully human Fab and Ig anti-idiotypic antibodies for pharmacokinetic (PK) as well as immunogenicity assays
Â· Panning strategies, affinity maturation
Â· Examples (adalimumab, trastuzumab, bevacizumab and others)
