Brief description Despite our advances in understanding the molecular basis of cancer, treatments for metastatic cancers are limited, emphasising an urgent need for strategies targeting several oncogenic pathways. We generated monoclonal antibodies effectively blocking the activity of ADAM10, an oncogenic cell surface protease that activates tumour growth, invasion and metastasis through multiple pathways. Here we describe the strategies that progress these antibodies as lead therapeutics for clinical testing.
