9th Annual World ADC in Review

Karen Cha, Halloran's new Vice President, Early Development, recently led a workshop at the 9th Annual ADC World Congress, just two weeks ago in San Diego, CA. 

The workshop, titled "Filing a Successful ADC IND - from Discovery to First in Human Study” covered various unique aspects of the ADC IND for successful initiation of the first-in-human study. Antibody-drug conjugates are complex products containing a targeting antibody conjugated to a highly potent cytotoxic agent with linker. This complexity requires consideration of a wider of set of regulatory guidance and expectations for successful initial IND preparation. The topics included general ADC IND considerations, unique aspects of the ADC eCTD structure, Pre-IND Consultation, CMC requirements and challenges, nonclinical study expectations and first-in-human study design considerations. Karen Cha and her co-presenter, Bruce Hart, Independent Consultant, ClearMatter Regulatory Consulting LLC, have both filed numerous ADC INDs, and shared anecdotes based on first-hand experience and Agency interactions.

World ADC is an excellent collaboration between sponsors pursuing ADC development, as well as vendors servicing those companies.
