The chimeric anti-CD20 antibody rituximab (Rituxan / MabThera) from Biogen Idec and Roche is one of the world’s commercially most successful antibodies (2014 sales of over US$ 6.9 bln). The commercial attractiveness of rituximab has stimulated companies to create and develop next generation anti-CD20 monoclonal antibodies with improved properties compared with the chimeric antibody rituximab. The forthcoming patent expiry for Rituxan / MabThera has boosted interest in and activties for developing biosimilar copies with the most advanced projects already approved and marketed in less regulated countries, but also in phase III studies in Western regulated markets.

The report includes a compilation of currently active projects in development of CD20 targeting antibodies for treatment of hematologic malignancies and rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases. In addition, the report lists company-specific R&D pipelines of CD20 antibodies. Competitor projects are listed in a tabular format providing information on:

  • Drug Codes,
  • Target / Mechanism of Action,
  • Class of Compound,
  • Company,
  • Product Category,
  • Indication,
  • R&D Stage and
  • additional comments with a hyperlink leading to the source of information.
