Seattle Genetics (SGEN) announced data from several collaborator antibody-drug conjugate, ADC, programs presented at the American Society of Clinical Oncology, ASCO, 50th Annual Meeting being held May 30 to June 3, 2014 in Chicago, IL. AbbVie (ABBV) presented preliminary data from an ongoing phase 1 clinical trial evaluating the ADC ABT-414 in combination with temozolomide in glioblastoma, and Genentech, a member of the Roche Group (RHHBY), is presenting data from five ADC programs, including two oral presentations. In addition, Progenics presented data from an ADC program under evaluation for castration-resistant prostate cancer. All of the collaborator programs utilize Seattle Genetics’ ADC technology. “Researchers at Seattle Genetics have identified and optimized novel components that are fundamental to creating antibody-drug conjugates, including potent cell-killing agents and conditionally stable linker systems,” said Jonathan Drachman, M.D., Chief Medical Officer and Executive Vice President, Research and Development at Seattle Genetics. “Our collaborators are making great progress in advancing novel ADC candidates as evidenced by the encouraging data presentations at ASCO. Seattle Genetics continues to lead the field in developing ADC candidates, which demonstrate the therapeutic potential of our technology broadly through both our proprietary and collaborator programs.”
