With over 30 years of R&D history, Antibody-drug Conjugates combine the targeting capabilities of monoclonal antibodies with the cancer-killing ability of cytotoxic drugs. Their goal is to transport “deactivated” toxic agents to targeted cancer cells without adversely affecting normal tissues. Once in the tumor cell the cytotoxin’s full cancer killing capability is activated causing rapid cell death. Although it sounds simple these therapies are complex and throughout its history and ongoing research is focused on optimizing the components and the resultant whole in terms of its ability to target the right cells and deliver the most effective knockout punch to cancer cells.
