Immunotherapy of cancer with direct or indirect use of T-cells is one of the most exciting fields of cancer research. Direct T-cell therapy implies the ex vivo engineering of autologous or allogeneic T-cells for tumor targeting by chimeric antigen receptors (CAR) or T-cell receptors (TCR). Despite stunning clinical results with CD19-targeted CAR T-cells, many major pharmaceutical companies have not embarked on this field of adoptive cell therapy, probably because cell products are a world completely different from that of small molecules or recombinant proteins and antibodies.
Tremendous progress in bispecific antibody technologies during the last decade and the clinical success of a first generation bispecific T-cell engager (BiTE) antibody molecule directed against CD19 lead to an explosion of T-cell redirecting bispecific antibodies in clinical development. Within 18 months, the number of clinical stage T-cell or natural killer (NK) cells redirecting bispecific antibodies has increased from 4 to 21 and further 16 molecules could enter clinical development within the next 12 months.
This report „T-Cell Redirecting Bispecific Antibodies 2016: A competitive landscape analysis of stakeholders, technologies, pipelines and deals“ as of May 2016 brings you up-to-date information about and analysis of 34 corporate players, 22 key technologies, 47 T-cell and NK-cell redirecting bispecific antibody profiles, business deals and private and public financing rounds.
The report analyzes the pipeline of T-cell and NK-cell redirecting bispecific antibody molecules regarding preferred targets, molecular constructs, dosing schedules, clinical experience, combination study plans, competition with other treatment modalities and the next wave of T-cell and NK-cell redirecting antibodies.
Preferences in bispecific antibody technologies are evaluated regarding drug candidate output, partnering, technological features and impact on clinical administration regimens.
The report highlights the commercial value of T-cell redirecting bispecific antibody immunotherautics in terms of drug prices, sales, company acquisition prices, economic terms of partnering deals, and private or public financing rounds.
