entana to develop a companion diagnostic for one of our ADC projects," said Prof. Dr. Andreas Busch, Head of Global Drug Discovery and Member of the Executive Committee of Bayer HealthCare.  "This constitutes another step for Bayer towards personalized medicine in cancer treatment as the selection of patients most likely to benefit from an ADC will increase the overall probability of therapeutic success for patients suffering from cancer."

About Antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs)
Antibody conjugation to potent cytotoxic drugs is a promising way to increase efficacy and reduce systemic toxicity of drugs by targeting them selectively to tumor tissue.  The antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) are comprised of three distinctive features: an antibody, a cytotoxic drug (toxophore) and a linker, which give ADCs their characteristic properties.  The monoclonal antibody is able to recognize surface proteins selectively over-expressed on cancer cells.  This targeting ability allows the ADCs to deliver its cytotoxic payload, the toxophore, right into the tumor.  Here, after internalization and release, the toxophore interferes with intracellular processes leading to the programmed death of the tumor cells.  The linkers are designed to keep the toxic agent attached to the antibody until the target cancer cell is reached.  The targeted nature of ADCs to specific tumor surface proteins or antigens make them good candidates for co-development with the VENTANA immunohistochemistry-based companion diagnostic assays that measure those antigens.
