Antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) targeting the RON receptor, a tumorigenic factor contributing to cancer malignancy, has been considered as a novel strategy for cancer therapy. Here the authors describe a humanized antibody recognizing the RON plexin-semaphorin-integrin (PSI) domain with increased drug delivery capability for potential clinical application. They conclude that H5B14-based ADCs targeting the RON PSI domain are superior in inducing RON internalization, leading to robust drug delivery and overall inhibition and eradication of tumors in multiple xenograft models.Authors: Xiang-Min Tong, Liang Feng, Sreedhar Reddy Suthe, Tian-Hao Weng, Chen-Yu Hu, Yi-Zhi Liu, Zhi-Gang Wu, Ming-Hai Wang and Hang-Ping YaoPublished as a research article in the Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (2019) 7:250.#ExperimentalSystems#MonoclonalAntibodies#AntibodyDrugConjugates#JournalArticle#JournalforImmunoTherapyofCancer#Researcher#2019
