VcMMAE (mc-vc-PAB-MMAE) is a drug-linker conjugate for ADCs with potent antitumor activity by using the anti-mitotic agent, monomethyl auristatin E (MMAE, a tubulin inhibitor), linked via the lysosomally cleavable dipeptide, valine-citrulline (vc). Monomethyl auristatin E (MMAE) is efficiently released from SGN-35 within CD30+ cancer cells and, due to its membrane permeability, is able to exert cytotoxic activity on bystander cells. MMAE sensitized colorectal and pancreatic cancer cells to IR in a schedule and dose dependent manner correlating with mitotic arrest. Radiosensitization is evidenced by decreased clonogenic survival and increased DNA double strand breaks in irradiated cells.
Cfm Oskar Tropitzsch GmbH supplies unique molecules - in this case the cytotoxins for antibodies. These payloads are ultra-toxic drugs, i.e. cytotoxic and/or cytostatic molecules, effective at a low dosage and ...
