Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor (EGFR) Antibodies Market: Overview
EGFR is the primary receptor recognized in a group of receptors and is a cell surface protein that binds to epidermal growth factor.EGFR is a cell membrane growth factor receptor characterized bytyrosine kinase receptor which plays very important role in the control of key cellular transduction pathways in both normal and cancerous cells.EGFR is the first molecular target against which monoclonal antibodies (mAb) have been developed in cancer therapy.
On the basis of types, the global epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) antibodies market is segmented into cetuximab, panitumumab, and nimotuzumab. Cetuximab and panitumumab are the most favored EGFR antibodies which are utilized for treatment of cancer. Nimotuzumab is a humanized monoclonal antibody that recognizes the EGFR antibody. These antibodies are used in the treatment of colorectal tumor as single chairmen and in mix with routine chemotherapy.
