About antibody-drug conjugates

Antibody-drug conjugates, or ADCs, are a class of highly potent drugs for the treatment of cancer. ADCs are composed of an antibody that is linked to an anti-cancer payload. The conjugates target cancer cells. Due to the high affinity of the antibodies to tumor cells, the cytotoxic payload is delivered specifically to the cancer tissue, reducing harmful side effects associated with traditional chemotherapeutic agents.
