Lugano, Switzerland: – Pharmaceutical ingredient specialist Cerbios-Pharma SA (Cerbios) will again be a high profile presence at the World ADC Europe conference in London, presenting advanced fully integrated solutions antibody drug conjugates.

Cerbios will be represented along with its partners at the PROVEO booth in the exhibition zone, highlighting the work of its dedicated Proveo business division in providing one stop shop solutions for ADC development and manufacturing. Proveo is also a sponsor of the event.

Optimizing ADC payload

A strong theme of Cerbios contributions to the conference will be its experiences in the development and manufacturing of complex payload molecules and it will contribute to the scientific sessions with presentation of a case study on optimization of payload development and manufacturing.

Cerbios R&D Director Dr. Alberto Terraneo will present “Next generation linker-payloads development and manufacture: a CDMO witness” stressing the key role of the linker in ADC safety and efficacy.

As drug developers pursue new epitopes to enlarge the applicability of ADCs to new tumor classes, there is increasing focus on the linker – payload part of the ADC.

Dr. Terraneo argues that these technical issues, and the demanding timeframes of innovators to reach a successful Biologics License Application (BLA) requires a more modern approach to chemical process development, that stresses QbD methodology to prioritize the issues to address plus extensive use of preparative high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) as the principal control strategy, along with tangential flow filtration and lyophilization for recovery. “These are the keys to the successful development and production of the most recent linker-payloads”, he says.

Lunchtime seminar

Apart from Dr. Terraneo, Cerbios and Proveo team at ADC World Europe will include Cerbios-Pharma SA CDMO Business Development Manager Vítor Sousa, along with Christoph Winterhalter, Senior Vice President Business Development at AGC Biologics, and Matthias Beck, Manager New Business Development at the other Proveo partner, Oncotec Pharma Produktion GmbH.

Cerbios will host the Lunch and Seminar Session on Day One of the event that will involve key players in the ADC field. The company will also use this only-invitation event to share latest information about the building of its new HPAPI manufacturing facility.
