Despite recent advances, malignant melanoma still causes thousands of deaths in the US each year. The goal of this project is to develop a novel, monoclonal antibody-based therapy that can reactivate the tumor-killing properties of the patient’s own immune system. This therapy has the potential to eradicate tumors that are refractory to existing therapy and thus save lives.
