Bioactivity Comments
In vitro, obinutuzumab induces cell death and antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) more effectively than the original type I anti-CD20 antibodies rituximab and ofatumumab [3]. In vivo, obinutuzumab induces a strong antitumour effect [3].
However, we have been unable to find affinity data for this antibody from any open access source.
