Use of Next Generation Protein Therapeutics Over Traditional Monoclonal Antibodies and Different Approaches

According to BIS Research and Research and Markets the worldwide biologics drug discovery market is predicted to increase from USD $8.1 billion in 2015 to USD $22.7 billion by 2025 (Figure 1). The biologics discovery growth rate is predicted to be faster than in the dominant small molecule discovery sector. Monoclonal antibodies are expected to make up just under half of the biologics discovery market in 2025. Engineered or recombinant proteins such as next generation protein therapeutics are expected to contribute 3 billion to the market in 2025.

The dominance of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are due to several factors including their efficacy brought about by their high specificity allowing selective targeting

Creating New Pathways for the Development, Translation, and Delivery of Immunotherapies

The last decade has seen substantial growth of immunotherapy treatments for cancer. The new immunotherapies have produced exciting results in terms of response rates to treatment for certain cancers, such as melanoma, which have been refractory to treatment, once substantial metastasis has occurred. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved several antibodies against immune checkpoint inhibitors based on the encouraging results in clinical trials. Other types of immune therapies are also being developed which may also be useful in the treatment of cancer.
