Companies mentioned in this article: Seattle Genetics, Inc.

BOTHELL, Wash. -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Seattle Genetics, Inc. (Nasdaq: SGEN) today announced that data from multiple proprietary and collaborator antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) programs will be highlighted at the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) 2014 Annual Meeting being held May 30 to June 3, 2014 in Chicago, IL.

With over 16 years of experience and knowledge in ADC innovation, Seattle Genetics is the leader in developing ADCs, a technology designed to harness the targeting ability of antibodies to deliver cell-killing agents directly to cancer cells. Of the more than 30 ADC candidates in clinical development, greater than 20 utilize Seattle Genetics’ proprietary ADC technology. Seattle Genetics and its collaborators, including Genentech (a member of the Roche Group), AbbVie and Progenics, have nine data presentations at ASCO that highlight the widespread evaluation of its ADC technology to potentially impact the way cancer is treated.

Corporate and collaborator presentations are included below and full abstracts can be accessed on the ASCO website at abstracts.asco.org.
