Professor Andrew Martin, UCL, speaking at the 4th Global Pharma R&D AI, Data Science and Informatics Summit, described using the abYsis database and workbench for drug discovery. He showed how it is possible to explore an annotate antibody sequence and structure, including comparisons with observed residue distributions. The database can also aid with humanization by making sequences more human and library design.

Antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) combine the high specificity of a monoclonal antibody (mAb) for a target antigen with the highly potent cytotoxic activity of small-molecule drugs. Although the concept behind ADCs is relatively simple, the successful design and development of ADCs is a complex task. Similar to other biotherapeutics, the understanding of Pharmacokinetics (PK), Pharmacodynamics (PD), and Absorption, Distribution, Metabolism, and Excretion (ADME) properties of ADCs is critical for their successful development.
