Avatar

Dr Ulrich Rüemenapp, Head of Launch Preparation and Coordination at Bayer Pharma, will be discussing late stage CMC development and bio-manufacturing for fast track projects at SMi’s 3rd annual Highly Potent Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients conference. Ahead of the conference next month, SMi interviewed him where he gave his thoughts on how the industry has progressed and what the future holds for the industry.

Ulrich said:

“From my point of view the hype in antibody-drug-conjugate (ADC) development has fallen compared to five years ago, but there are still definitely exciting and promising new developments in the ADC field. “

“ADCs still have much room for development and improve on their chemical payloads. The industry will strive towards higher specificity of these drugs along with the increase in safety for the patients and workers. Additionally, other novel technologies are being developed for ADCs and this segment of the market will likely to continue to see strong growth…”
