What Congress failed to appreciate at the time was the current state of protein characterization science and consequently whether interchangeability could in fact be obtained or what level of biosimilarity was acceptable.
Christi Bird, Senior Industry Analyst, Frost & Sullivan, believes the bleakest outlook provided for the life sciences industry is one without a clear light at the end of the tunnel, and successful companies will buckle down to determine long-term strategies for beating the lackluster numbers expected from a sustained austerity policy.
Marshall Crew, PhD, explores some of the key features of people and organizations that lead to the innovations and products, and hopes that by example, insights can be acquired that will be useful in his colleagues respective organizations and that might ultimately lead to more innovation in the industry.
Archana Gangakhedkar, MS, and Jyothi Thundimadathil, PhD, indicate peptide-based linkers are promising counterparts in ADCs, providing tumor-specific cleavable and stable circulating linkers, and a new emerging class of PDCs is proving to be useful toward a broad spectrum of indications when compared to ADCs.
