Antibody-targeted immunotoxins could help treat liver fibrosis

University of California – San Diego In mouse models of human disease, immunotoxins targeting the protein mesothelin prevent liver cells from producing collagen, a precursor to fibrosis and cirrhosis. Effectively, this represents the use of an antibody-drug conjugate to target a feature of diseased tissue, an approach that is already in use in the management of solid tumours. Chronic alcohol […]
