Monoclonal antibodies: versatile platforms for cancer immunotherapy
Antibodies are important therapeutic agents for cancer. Recently, it has become clear that antibodies possess several clinically relevant mechanisms of action. Many clinically useful antibodies can… Expand
The Prioritization of Cancer Antigens: A National Cancer Institute Pilot Project for the Acceleration of Translational Research
The purpose of the National Cancer Institute pilot project to prioritize cancer antigens was to develop a well-vetted, priority-ranked list of cancer vaccine target antigens based on predefined and… Expand
Predictive biomarkers for checkpoint inhibitor-based immunotherapy.
The clinical development of checkpoint inhibitor-based immunotherapy has ushered in an exciting era of anticancer therapy. Durable responses can be seen in patients with melanoma and other… Expand
Monoclonal antibody therapy of cancer
The most significant recent advances in the application of monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) to oncology have been the introduction and approval of bevacizumab (Avastin), an anti–vascular endothelial… Expand
Influence of affinity and antigen internalization on the uptake and penetration of Anti-HER2 antibodies in solid tumors.
Antibody drugs are widely used in cancer therapy, but conditions to maximize tumor penetration and efficacy have yet to be fully elucidated. In this study, we investigated the impact of antibody… Expand
Isolation of picomolar affinity anti-c-erbB-2 single-chain Fv by molecular evolution of the complementarity determining regions in the center of the antibody binding site.

The epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) is a transmembrane glycoprotein, with an extracellular ligand-binding domain and intracellular tyrosine kinase domain. Ligand binding induces EGFR… Expand
High affinity restricts the localization and tumor penetration of single-chain fv antibody molecules.
Antitumor monoclonal antibodies must bind to tumor antigens with high affinity to achieve durable tumor retention. This has spurred efforts to generate high affinity antibodies for use in cancer… Expand

Human NK cells lyse Ab-coated target cells through the process of Ab-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC). Improving ADCC responses is desirable because it is thought to be an important antitumor… Expand
Global gene expression profiling of circulating tumor cells.
Metastases from primary tumors are responsible for most cancer deaths. It has been shown that circulating tumor cells (CTCs) can be detected in the peripheral blood of patients with a variety of… Expand
