Antibody Development Service

Because of the inaccuracy and low efficiencies of traditional treatment, such as surgery, chemotherapy, and radiotherapy, in recent years, RDC (Radionuclide Drug Conjugate), with targeted diagnosis and imaging, has been widely noticed and studied in recent years.

The targeting biomolecules in RDC could be antibodies, small molecules, and peptides, in which antibodies are most commonly used, also name RAC (Radionuclide Antibody Conjugate).

Rdcthera, adapting the advanced antibody discovery technology, is professional at antibody discovery, screening, and synthesis.

Tumor-Specific Antigen

Antibody can identify the specific overexpressed antigens on tumor cells. In immunotherapy, we can detect different antigenic components and use them to induce an anti-tumor immune response in the body for tumor diagnosis and treatment. There are five mechanisms for the production of tumor-specific antigens shown below.

  • Expression products of mutated genes or oncogenes;
  • Abnormally expressed cellular proteins;
  • Tumor antigens expressed by oncogenic viruses;
  • Tissue-specific differentiation antigens;
  • Abnormal cellular proteins and their products due to glycosylation.

For example, HER2, a 185 kDa transmembrane protein, is overexpressed in types of cancers, including breast, ovarian, endometrial, gastric, pancreatic, and prostate cancers.  The overexpressed HER2 is an important validated diagnostic marker and treatment target in breast cancer.

Discovered Antibody Applied for RDC

Antibodies can bind with a high degree of specificity to the antigen and are easily cleared due to their relatively small size. Antibody design is the most important step in RDC development, as it determines the target cells and the efficiency and accuracy of the targeting process of the RDC. Several tumor-specific antigens, discovered in different types of tumor cells, are conjugated in the RDC.

Types of Cancer Target
Prostate Cancer PSMA
Multiple Cancers PARP
Solid Tumors GRPR
Multiple Cancers AKT
Multiple Cancers TKI
Breast Cancer Her2
Colorectal Cancer EGFR
Chronic Lymphocytic Leukemia CD20

Our Service

  • Antibody Discovery Service
  • In RDC development, antibodies and antibody fragments were commonly used in target recognition. Different types of antibodies have different advantages. The plasma half-life time and blood clearance of intact antibodies are relatively longer, while the use of intact antibodies is limited because of the poor penetration into solid tumors and cell uptake. Notably, this penetrates and uptake limitation can be overcome by antibody fragments. However, the ultra-small size of antibody fragments with great penetrating is restricted by the labeling with radioactive substances, as the pharmacokinetics of antibodies can be affected by chelators. Rdcthera provides all types of antibody discovery services according to your project.
