WOODINVILLE, Wash. and SUZHOU, ChinaOct. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- ProfoundBio announces that preclinical data from its novel, proprietary ADC technology platform are being presented at the 2021 Molecular Targets and Cancer Therapeutics conference hosted by the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR), the National Cancer Institute (NCI), and the European Organisation for Research and Treatment of Cancer (EORTC).  The presentation is entitled, "Novel Hydrophilic Drug Linkers Enable Exatecan-based Antibody-Drug Conjugates with Promising Physiochemical Properties and In Vivo Activity."

"Our platform enables us to develop ADCs that could otherwise not even be considered for development. By optimizing physiochemical properties, our platform enables the use of hydrophobic payloads at a drug to antibody ratio (DAR) up to 8, and potentially higher, while maintaining similar pharmacokinetics to unconjugated mAb, robust anti-tumor activity, and an acceptable safety profile," said Baiteng Zhao, PhD, Chief Executive Officer at ProfoundBio. "This technology has the potential to usher in a new generation of ADCs that will meaningfully help patients who have cancer."
