BiTE and ADCs for cancer therapy

This Journal of Hematology & Oncology series covers bi-specific T-cell engagers (BiTE) and antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) for cancer therapy. The series, which is no longer open for submissions, will include reviews, editorials, and first in-human clinical trial papers.

Articles published in the collection have already gone through the systematic peer review process of the journal.


  1. Chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-modified T cells and BiTEs are both immunotherapies which redirect T cell specificity against a tumor-specific antigen through the use of antibody fragments. They demonstrated r...

  2. Bispecific T cell engagers (BiTEs) are an innovative class of immunotherapeutics that redirect T cells to tumor surface antigens. While efficacious against certain hematological malignancies, limited bioavaila...

  3. Therapeutic antibodies targeting programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1)/programmed death-ligand 1 (PD-L1) axis induce potent and durable anti-tumor responses in multiple types of cancers. However, only a subse...

  5. Antibody–drug conjugates (ADCs) are a relatively new class of anticancer agents designed to merge the selectivity of monoclonal antibodies with cell killing properties of chemotherapy. They are commonly descri...
