Antibody‐Directed Enzyme Prodrug Therapy: A Promising Approach for a Selective Treatment of Cancer Based on Prodrugs and Monoclonal Antibodies
The antibody‐directed enzyme prodrug therapy allows a selective liberation of cytotoxic agents from non‐toxic prodrugs in cancerous tissue by targeted antibody–enzyme conjugates. We have developed aExpand
