Therapeutic antibodies have been used for several decades and their associated market (project numbers, approvals…) continues to grow. Remarkably, a new threshold was crossed in the early 2010's to make this decade the decade of immunotherapy. Over the past 10 years, 62 antibodies have been approved, the number of annual transactions between stakeholders has increased to more than 300 (three times more in 2018 than in 2009). The revolution of immunotherapy in cancer treatment and the recent use of antibodies as first-line treatment are the major turning points in oncology. Thus, the last three years alone represent two thirds of the most important deals of the decade involving immunotherapies. Immunotherapy is currently experiencing a golden age that has resulted in many successes, especially in France where biotechnology companies and large pharmaceutical companies have achieved impressive therapeutic and financial results.
