Scientific Briefing: Antibody Discovery for Traditionally Difficult Targets: in vivo, in vitro, or both?
Abstract: Leveraging the natural immune repertoire for antibody discovery has distinct advantages for positive downstream outcomes, including efficacy, developability and safety; however, traditional techniques typically fail to produce a productive response in situations where, for example, the target epitope has poor immunogenicity or is a rare, cryptic site. While some in vitro platforms can overcome these difficulties through careful guiding selection methods, significant downstream engineering is often required to ensure lead candidates harbor appropriate development qualities. Fortunately, recent advancements in protein engineering and antibody discovery have enabled improved drug development to these traditionally difficult targets. Using the AbX platform, the power of the immune system is harnessed to exemplify the breadth and comprehensive nature of the B cell repertoire. When applied to the most difficult target classes, lead candidates can be uncovered where traditional in vivo platforms typically fail, or significant engineering is required for in vitro discovery.
