Comments
Epratuzumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody. It is derived from the murine IG2a monotclonal antibody, LL2 (EPB-2). Epratuzumab has antineoplastic and antiinflammatory actions [1].
The antibody can be conjugated with tetraxetan (DOTA) which allows chelation of radionucleotides such as yttrium-90 [5].
