Expert view: Multiplexed screens in biologics discovery

7 September 2018 | By

Biologics are the fastest growing class of therapeutics in the biopharmaceutical industry. A key driver for this growth is success with anti-cancer immunotherapeutics such as checkpoint modulation, adoptive cell therapy and bispecific T-cell engagers. While these approaches use different tactics to attack tumours, they often employ monoclonal antibodies to target…

Expert view: Assays to measure the potency of therapeutic antibodies used in combination with other drugs for Immuno‑Oncology treatments

6 September 2018 | By

Growing evidence reveals that using single immunotherapies to treat oncological disorders may lead to cancer-killing T-cell overdrive,initiating life-threatening autoimmune reactions including cytokinestorm; also known as hypercytokinemia or Cytokine Release Syndrome(CRS). Recently, checkpoint blockade using anti-programmed cell death1 (anti-PD-1) inhibitors became a prevalent approach for stimulatinganti-tumour immune system.
