What do all immunotherapies under development have in common?
Whether in preclinical or clinical stage, they all need robust and reliable monitoring tools to track and characterize the immune response.
ABL services address most critical requirements:
Sampling plans and logistics
Immunology assay development and validation
Integrated approach to utilizing multiple instrument platforms
Efficient study execution and data analysis
Flexible options for alternative study approaches
Measuring the impact of a drug on the functionality of immune cells generally relies on peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC). Preserving their viability and, most importantly, their functional integrity is critical for generating reliable, unbiased data. In order to ensure sample preservation, ABL has developed a network of international laboratories for timely (<8H) and high quality PBMC processing & storage using harmonized SOPs. This network is supporting several multi-site clinical trials in Europe and North America.
We support dozens of preclinical and clinical studies evaluating the safety and efficacy of several immunotherapies, including monoclonal antibodies (MAbs), Antibody Drug conjugates (ADCs), therapeutic vaccines, Chimeric Antigen Receptor T cells (CAR-T cells), oncolytic virotherapies, etc.
