Immunopharmacology Ligand
Compound class: Antibody
Comment: Veltuzumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody targeting CD20. With the exeption of Asp101 in the complementarity-determining region 3 (CDR3) of the antibody's variable heavy chain, its CDRs are identical to rituximab [2]. This single amino acid substitution appears to account for veltuzumab's reduced off-rate compared to rituximab [2] as well as its enhanced capacity to induce antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), and complement-mediated cytotoxicity.
