Antibody–Drug Conjugates (ADCs)
An antibody–drug conjugate is an antibody linked to an anti-cancer drug. The antibody targets and binds to cancer cells – delivering the “toxic” drug directly to the tumor. This approach to chemotherapeutic drug delivery “spares” healthy cells from the drug’s toxic effects as it is concentrated towards the disease tissue. Approved ADC therapies exist for breast cancer, leukemia and lymphoma.
