About Monoclonal Antibody – Interferon (mAb-IFN) Fusion Proteins

mAb-IFN fusion proteins are a new class of biotherapeutics that are produced by fusing antibodies to tumor cell-killing cytokines (e.g. IFN).  These fusion proteins offer potential advantages because several important properties can be built into a single, genetically engineered molecule.  They are thought to kill tumor cells mainly by stimulating apoptosis, in an ADCC (antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity)-independent manner.  Consequently, these molecules have the potential to be efficacious in patients with defective ADCC mechanisms.  In addition, they have the potential to be cytotoxic to tumor cells with low density of targeted surface antigens.  The fusion proteins ret
