Since the approval of Enbrel® in 1998 for the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, Fc fusion therapies have evolved into a prominent class of therapeutics; currently, several therapies are being developed for a variety of disease indications
With 13 drugs approved in the European Union and the US, Fc fusion therapeutics are considered to be one of the most successful classes of IgG-based products. The success of these biopharmaceutical products can be attributed to their diverse biological and pharmacological properties, including an extended serum half-life, enhanced Fc mediated effector functions, easy expression, increased stability and aggregation resistance, modulated immunogenicity and improved safety profiles, for the treatment of a wide range of disease indications
