The Next-Generation Antibody Players

This article was originally published in Start Up

Executive Summary

A host of companies are vying to develop new and improved antibodies. Technologies span the gamut from improving ADCC effector function to stripping away components of traditional antibodies to create leaner molecules that may be cheaper to manufacture and eaiser to deliver orally. These start-ups remain product focused, eschewing the platform technology model. Pharmaceutical and established biotechnology companies are eager to get their hands on the technologies, causing a flurry of deal-making in the last year.
