Antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis (ADCP) is one of the key mechanisms of action for monoclonal antibodies, which enable the immune system to clear cancerous cells from the body.
Engagement of cancer and phagocytic cells, to promote specific engulfment of the tumor cells occurs. Robust, quantitative in vitro assays measuring ADCP induction by monoclonal antibodies, are essential for development and characterization of novel therapeutics.
Key webinar discussion topics include:
- How the iQue® Human Antibody-Dependent Cellular Phagocytosis Kit is used with the iQue® Advanced Flow Cytometry Platform to quantify ADCP
- The use of the iQue® and integrated Forecyt® software, to rank monoclonal antibodies based on their effects on ADCP
- Highlights of case studies which measure differences in ADCP induction between different antibody isotypes and cell types
- Live questions and answers
