In addition to traditional small molecule compounds, new types of payloads such as PROTACs and light-activated molecules have also been selected as payloads.
The concept of ADCs was first proposed by Nobel Prize winner Paul Ehrlich in 1913. But it was not until 1975, when hybridoma technology began to be used to produce monoclonal antibodies, that the era of ADC drug development truly began. Driven by increasingly mature technology, ADC drugs have gone through three iterations (Fig. 1). Although ADCs have gone through three iterations, current payloads still have clinical limitations, such as severe side effects and drug resistance. The development of novel ADC payloads is a complex and dynamic process, encompassing a diverse range of agents such as RNA inhibitors, Bcl-xL inhibito…
Despite advancements in the production of bio-based plastics, challenges persist, including high production costs and competition for food resources.
