According to the company, the ADCs are complex molecules composed of an antibody linked to a biologically active cytotoxic drug
and are becoming emerging treatments of targeted tumor therapy.
For example, the linkers between the antibody and drug components allow the cytotoxic drug
molecules (payload) to be released in precise ways.
According to Roots Analysis, there are 96 CMOs and CDMOs worldwide with more than 130 facilities that are focused on HPAPI manufacturing, and approximately 40% of these manufacturing sites are dedicated to the production of both HPAPIs and cytotoxic drugs
