Phase I pharmacokinetics (PK) of humanized anti-MUC-1 antibody R1550.

2533 Background: MUC-1 glycoprotein establishes a molecular barrier at the epithelial surface, and engages in morphogenetic signal transduction. A 20 amino acid MUC-1 core tandem repeat is aberrantly glycosylated in >90% of epithelial tumors, exposing peptide sequence PDTRP. Humanized IgG1 κ monoclonal antibody R1550 binds PDTRP (Kd∼1nM) and induces potent… (More)
