Paolo Tarantino: Impressive to think at the journey of ADCs over the last five years

Paolo Tarantino shared on LinkedIn:

“Impressive to think at the journey of ADCs over the last five years.

Five years ago today, the only ADC approved for a solid tumor was T-DM1, approved for a limited subgroup of patients with metastatic breast cancer.

Five years later, we have 6 different ADCs approved, 2 more expected soon, indications for breast, lung, ovarian, gastric, cervical, urothelial cancer, an ADC approved for treating ANY type of tumor that overexpresses HER2, and 150+ new ADCs in active development.

And it’s only just started.”
