Confidently navigate the complexities of Targeted Protein Degrader (TPD) clinical development

The difficulties in Targeted Protein Degrader or TPD clinical development

Targeted protein degraders (TPDs) offer great promise in treating some of the most challenging diseases thanks to their ability to degrade ‘undruggable’ disease-associated proteins.

Consequently, the field has grown rapidly and continues to evolve at pace.

But developing a TPD isn’t easy. For success, developers must:

  • Confidently grasp their TPD’s mechanism of action and accurately monitor target protein degradation to assess potency and optimize dosing schedules
  • Unravel the complex causes of any TPD resistance that occurs so they can quickly overcome it

Without the right biomarker capabilities to overcome these challenges, TPD development can become more costly and convoluted than necessary.

How can CellCarta support Targeted Protein Degrader or TPD success?

Optimally select and monitor patients, and unravel the cause of TPD resistance

We can help you better stratify and monitor patients, as well as unravel mechanisms of TPD resistance to maximize your chance of clinical trial success.

Take advantage of:

  • Advanced sequencing tools, histology assays, and companion diagnostic (CDx) know-how  to ensure patients most likely to benefit from treatment are included in your trial
  • Technologies to help you generate more comprehensive data about your TPD, and better understand and track patient responses — from non-invasive monitoring of circulating tumour cells to cytokine storm monitoring
  • An array of approaches to help you decode complex TPD resistance pathways and monitor for their activation, including next-generation sequencing (TSO500) panel, whole exome sequencing, RNA sequencing) and NanoString
