Disitamab vedotin, a novel HER2-directed antibody-drug conjugate in gastric cancer and other solid tumors.

Drugs of Today 2022 October
Antibody-drug conjugates (ADC), a combination of cytotoxic drugs and antibodies, have emerged as a rising star in cancer therapy. Disitamab vedotin (RC48), a novel ADC targeting human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2), is currently being explored in a variety of malignancies. Compared with conventional HER2-targeting agents, RC48 is characterized by a wider therapeutic window and less toxicity to normal tissues. In this review, we will analyze the structural elements and mechanisms of RC48. Besides, we provide a landscape on the progression of RC48 in common malignancies, focusing on RC48 in gastric or gastroesophageal junction cancer, and a brief overview of urothelial, breast and other cancers (e.g., gynecological cancer, biliary tract cancer, non-small cell lung cancer and myometrial invasive bladder cancer). Finally, we will also discuss future challenges in the development of RC48 and future directions to improve efficacy.
