Antibody immunotherapy is a type of treatment that’s designed to target specific antigens (molecules that stimulate an immune response) in the body and neutralize them. In early and ongoing clinical trials, the antibodies developed by Y-mAbs have shown results that garner continued evaluation.Learn more
Y-mAbs was founded by Thomas Gad, President and Head of Business Development and Strategy, who is also the father of a high-risk neuroblastoma survivor.
After years of searching for an effective option for neuroblastoma, Gad's daughter received treatment from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). Since then, Gad has envisioned helping other patients and families get access to the same products.
Y-mAbs may someday help patients fight cancer with their advanced pipeline of antibody immunotherapies, which are currently being investigated in ongoing clinical trials.
