We believe that each of our antibodies has therapeutic potential either when administered as a naked antibody or when conjugated with therapeutic radioisotopes (radiolabeled), chemotherapeutics, cytokines or other toxins to create unique and potentially more effective treatment options. The attachment of various compounds to antibodies is intended to allow the delivery of these therapeutic agents to tumor sites with better specificity than conventional radiation therapy or chemotherapy approaches. This treatment method is designed to reduce the total exposure of the patient to the therapeutic agents, which ideally minimizes debilitating side effects. We are currently focusing our efforts on unlabeled, or “naked” antibodies and antibodies conjugated with drugs, cytokines, or toxins, and on the use of radioisotopes, such as yttrium-90 90Y.
