About Anitbody Fragment  Drug Conjugates (FDCs)

Antibody Fragment Drug Conjugates (FDCs, also called immuno-conjugates) combine the pharmacological potency of highly cytotoxic drugs with the high specificity of an antibody against tumour-associated targets. FDCs comprises of much smaller antibody fragments (single-chain scFvs) than ‘whole’ antibody drug conjugates (ADCs). FDCs can be bio-engineered for multiple drug-molecule conjugation, leading to far higher loadings on a small fragment than has so far been achieved with whole monoclonal Antibodies (mAbs). FDCs have further demonstrated superior tumour penetration and rapid elimination from normal tissues, in vitro1. With predicted sales of ADCs to be over $20 billion USD by 20282, FDCs as the next-generation of cancer therapeutics that is positioned to overcome many limitations of existing treatment options, will have exciting market potential.
