Viewing disease through the lens of memory B cells: improving cancer and infectious disease treatment
Looking at disease through a patient’s memory B cells can reveal vulnerabilities within pathogens. In this article, Dr Purnanand Sarma, President and Chief Executive Officer of Immunome, explores how advancements in memory B-cell antibody-based treatments will improve our understanding of how these cells can aid in fighting cancer and other diseases.
A monoclonal antibody (mAb) developed by IGM Biosciences to combat COVID-19 has shown success in pre-clinical studies and has now moved into Phase I trials. In this Q&A, Dr Chris Takimoto, Chief Medical Officer at IGM Biosciences, explains how this biotherapeutic works to prevent and treat SARS-CoV-2 infection.
The COVID-19 pandemic has placed a spotlight on the discovery and development of biotherapeutics, for both the treatment and prevention of diseases. In this article, industry experts discuss the emerging trends they see in biotherapeutic development and how they predict the field will evolve in the near future.
CAR T cells have shown incredible promise in the clinic, but there is still room for advancement. One avenue for improvement is through modification of the CAR design. However, given the number of exchangeable domains, testing all variations can present a hurdle. In this article, Dr Sarwish Rafiq, Assistant Professor in…
A new study from the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center, US has revealed that a cytokine and a fatty acid can work together to trigger ferroptosis. Here, Dr Weiping Zou, the lead researcher from the study, outlines how this process could be used to target cancer cells and enhance immunotherapies.
The rising number of biologics approved for therapeutic use has placed an emphasis on safe and efficient production lines. Here, Drug Target Review’s Editor Victoria Rees considers why biotherapeutic development is likely to prompt significant growth for the cell line market in the next decade.
Messenger RNA (mRNA) may be the ‘skeleton key’ that unlocks the door to fight latent viral infections that have plagued researchers for generations. Dr Sandeep Basnet, Director, Clinical Development at Moderna Therapeutics explores modern vaccine development and why mRNA is taking centre stage.
Protecting against conditions that appear in older generations is increasingly becoming a focus of the medical industry. In this article, Dr Andrea Pfeifer, CEO and Director of AC Immune, discusses the current landscape of vaccine development for neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s.
This ebook includes articles about antibody-based therapies that could protect against cancer by utilising a patient's memory B cells. Also included is a piece on an intranasally-delivered monoclonal antibody treatment to potentially protect against SARS-CoV-2.
A collaboration between Exscientia and the University of Oxford Target Discovery Institute (Oxford TDI) has been established to source cellular functional assays from the global academic community, with the goal of developing novel screens and identifying targets and therapeutic candidates for unmet medical needs. Here, Dr Denise Barrault, Director of…
