Conjugated antibodies

Conjugated antibodies

In antibody–drug conjugates, an anticancer drug, such as a radioactive compound or a cytotoxic drug, is bound to an antibody that specifically targets a certain protein found on tumor cells. This mechanism allows for enhanced killing of target cells. Gemtuzumab ozogamicin is an example of a CD33-targeting antibody conjugated with a cytotoxic agent.
