THERAPEUTIC PEPTIDES – Continuous Manufacturing of Peptides Could Speed Up Development, Reduce Costs & Improve Quality
Jens Bukrinski, PhD, MSc, says the high-quality, high-process consistency between manufacturing runs and the in-line PAT analytics of the μLOT platform will enable unprecedented robustness of the manufacturing process, significantly retiring the risk of failure to supply due to non-scalability of the manufacturing process.
INTRATUMORAL DELIVERY – Combining Local & Systemic Treatments: Could Immuno-Oncology Finally Enable Local Intratumoral Delivery?
Lewis H. Bender, MA, MBA, says cancer is a local and systemic disease, and new forms of local treatment, such as intratumoral dosing coupled with systemic immunotherapy, are being explored.
Josef Bossart, PhD, reviews the Development and Review Times associated with new molecular entity (NME) approvals throughout the 2010 to 2018 period.
EXECUTIVE INTERVIEW – Noxopharm: Introducing a Novel & Potentially Transformative Drug Candidate in the Treatment of Cancer
Graham Kelly, Founder, Executive Chairman, and CEO of Noxopharm, discusses the company’s innovative approach to cancer treatment.
Emile Youssef, MD, PhD, says due to tumor heterogeneity, the plasticity and diversity of cancer cells, and a multitude of other factors, biomarker development is a challenge, and thus explores four trends in cancer biomarker discovery.
Josef Bossart, PhD, explains how accurately estimating a product’s clinical development timelines is more than simply adding up the individual timelines, almost always optimistic. You need to “know” the numbers, not just calculate them.
OLIGONUCLEOTIDE DELIVERY – Dectin-1 Receptor-Mediated Delivery of Oligonucleotide Drugs Complexed With Schizophyllan Dendritic Cells & Macrophages
Kenji Arima, PhD, and Akihiko Watanabe, PhD, introduce NapaJen Pharma’s technology with a specific focus on solving some of the current challenges of oligonucleotide therapeutics.
Cheryl L. Barton, PhD, and Bianca Piachaud-Moustakis, PhD, believe the role of TIL therapy as an anticancer therapy in melanoma and possibly other solid tumors holds great promise and could become a viable course of treatment in the future.
For each participating company, this section presents a detailed summary highlighting their core technologies, capabilities, technologies, and services.
