Researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center, working with colleagues at The University of Arizona and Arizona State University, have developed a new combination agent approach targeting tumor receptors based on their variety of cell surface proteins. The approach, which was tested in pancreatic cancers and melanoma modeled in tumor-bearing mice, opens the possibility of developing new multivalent agents that can target unique and multiple receptor combinations in tumor cells. This is a significant improvement over current single-target strategies.
