ADC Therapeutics Sarl Key Developments
ADC Therapeutics Submits its First IND for a Novel Antibody Drug Conjugate Against Lymphomas
Mar 16 15
ADC Therapeutics Sarl announced that it has filed an Investigational New Drug application (IND) with the US Food and Drug Administration as it moves its pipeline into clinical development. The IND is for a Phase I clinical trial for ADCT-301, a novel antibody drug conjugate targeting CD25, a cell-surface antigen, which is over-expressed in many patients with lymphomas. The Phase I clinical trial will commence at four leading oncology centres in the USA, and can expand into two centres in the United Kingdom. The initial up to 58 patient adaptive designed dose-escalation study, will evaluate the tolerability, safety, pharmacokinetics and antitumor activity of ADCT-301 in patients with relapsed or refractory Hodgkin's and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma. Subject to study results, ADC Therapeutics intends to rapidly expand the numbers of patients in the trial and the participating clinical centres.

ADC Therapeutics and MedImmune Announces Update on Joint Venture
May 18 14
ADC Therapeutics announced that it has selected its first IND candidate under its joint development agreement with MedImmune. This follows the October 2013 announcement in which MedImmune entered into a collaboration agreement with ADC Therapeutics to jointly develop two of ADCT's antibody-drug conjugate programs in preclinical development. ADCT-401 targets Prostate-Specific Membrane Antigen (PSMA) a cell-surface antigen specifically expressed by prostate cancer cells. ADCT-401 comprises an anti-PSMA monoclonal antibody coupled with a pyrrolobenzodiazepine (PBD) warhead using a proprietary linker licensed from London-based Spirogen, a wholly owned subsidiary of MedImmune. Initial clinical studies will focus on hormone-refractory prostate cancer and an IND filing is anticipated in 2015. The PSMA-specific J591 antibody in ADCT-401 was developed by Dr. Neil H. Bander, the Bernard & Josephine Chaus Professor of Urologic Oncology and Director of Urological Oncology Research at the Weill-Cornell Medical College, New York. Dr. Bander is also Chairman of ADCT's Scientific Advisory Board. PSMA is a cell-surface antigen expressed by virtually all prostate cancer cells, including metastases, and also in the blood vessels that feed many other tumor types, but is rarely expressed in normal cells. This will be ADCT's second ADC program into the clinic from its pipeline of eleven programs with an IND filing expected in the first of these programs by the end of the year 2014. The pre-clinical development of ADCT-401 is being managed by a team of scientists based in laboratories at the Queen Mary Bioenterprises Innovation Centre, London which, being co-located with Spirogen, enables close co-operation between the two groups.
