Antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) are an important class of highly potent biopharmaceutical drugs, which are created by coupling a small molecule anticancer drug or a therapeutic agent to an antibody that specifically targets a certain tumor marker. Through combining the targeting capabilities of monoclonal antibodies with the cancer-killing ability of cytotoxic drugs, ADCs are able to distinguish between healthy and diseased tissue. Therefore, ADCs are intended to target and kill only the cancer cells but not healthy cells compared with traditional chemotherapy drugs. ADCs have been designed as a targeted therapy for the treatment of cancer and have drawn wide attention among the public.
