Héctor Pérez Montoyo, of Ability Pharma discusses his research on, “ABTL0812, a new immunotherapeutic anticancer agent at phase 2b clinical stage.”

Héctor’s work has always focused on understanding the molecular pathophysiological mechanisms leading to autoimmunity and cancer development, investigating mechanism of action of newly developed molecules to treat such diseases. He started his career in 2006 when he moved to UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas (EEUU), to carry out this thesis in developing novel therapeutic antibodies in murine models of human autoimmune diseases. After obtaining his Ph.D., he combined two postdoctoral grants in Barcelona (Metastasis and Transformation group in Bellvitge Biomedical Research Center) and in Valencia (Autoimmune Pathology Lab in…

The Bispecific and Complex mAbs Driving Process Development Innovation, Roche

According to a statement by the VP of Roche technical development bioprocessing, Wolfgang Kuhne said that the older processes used to produce monoclonal antibodies like Herceptin and Avastin are not sufficient to produce complex and advanced pharmaceuticals. A bioprocess international European summit was held in Vienna, Austria during which delegates were told that making candidates like ACE910 – a bispecific antibody granted breakthrough designation for Haemophilia last September – had required a considerable process development effort. In his statement, he clarified by saying “There are no more classical standard approaches…
