ADCs are important to Seattle Genetics because they can spare healthy cells which greatly reduces the harmful effects of typical chemotherapy treatments. As a result, anti-tumor antibodies can directly attack cancer cells while sparing healthy cells. The biotechnological company does not just offer one type of drug to treat cancer, but a whole family of treatments meant to target different types of cancer cells. There are 20 different types of ADCs being researched that show promise for helping cancer patients live and feel better. ADCETRIS is one type of ADC that is being evaluated as a potential treatment for lymphomas. SGN-CD322 is also being evaluated as a possible treatment for the advanced stages of Leukemia.
