Description: Please also see doxorubicin-conjugated milatuzumab.
Milatuzumab is a naked humanized monoclonal antibody (ie without any attached drugs or radioactive material) targeting the CD74 antigen. CD74 is a chaperone molecule (a rapidly internalizing type-II transmembrane chaperone) associated with MHC class II, directing transport from the cell surface to an endosomal compartment. CD74 has also been implicated as an accessory-signaling molecule. High expression of CD74 has been observed in human non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and multiple myeloma clinical specimens and cell lines.
