In the first part of the review on novel targets in hematologic malignancies, we covered five key areas in detail relating to emerging new agents around BTK, BRD, BET, and E3 ligase modulators (CELMoDs).

Continuing our look at some additional novel targets and agents in early development in hematologic malignancies, in part two of this series we explore four additional areas that piqued our interest.

These mostly involve either small molecules or monoclonal antibodies.

In the next series, we shall look at emerging immunotherapy related targets, but for now there’s plenty of targeted therapies to focus on!

For some time now there has been much debate about finding a predictive biomarker of response for EGFR monoclonal antibodies used in the treatment of advanced colorectal cancer.  These include cetuximab (Erbitux) and panitumumab (Vectibix).

After all, we know that they tend to work in wild type disease (as shown in the US label below) and that KRAS and NRAS mutations on codon 12 and 13 on exon 2, as well as others on exon 3 and 4 tend to portend resistance to therapy, but beyond that not much is known.

At the European Cancer Conference in Vienna last month I was intrigued to see some new data emerge that may help researchers better understand and predict which people with metastatic colon cancer are more likely to respond in the future.

Beyond the late breaking abstracts and plenary sessions at the European Cancer Conference being held in Vienna, Austria later this month, what other important topics can we expect to hear about?

ECCO 2015 Vienna

We covered the former in the last article on Biotech Strategy Blog, today we turn our attention to the proffered (oral) sessions and what we can learn from those sessions and the expected data that is due to be presented.

There are a number of interesting topics and new data slated for presentation that are worthy of review and highlighting in a What To Watch out For (W2W4) format.

Here’s our take on the potential highlights at the meeting.
