Antibody therapy

Antibody therapy

Monoclonal antibodies target antigens expressed by lymphoma cells, making them more selective than chemotherapy. As exemplified by rituximab, which targets CD20 present on B-cells, the Fc portion of the antibody mediates cytotoxicity, while the binding site induces downregulation of the B-cell receptor and apoptosis in CD20+ cells.
