Edrecolomab (MAb17-1A) is a murine monoclonal antibody to the cell-surface glycoprotein 17-1A, which is expressed on epithelial tissues and on various carcinomas. Preliminary studies had shown promise of a possible use in patients with colorectal carcinoma. However, when put to a phase III study (2,761 patients) it did not provide any benefit when compared to conventional chemotherapeutic agents . It is important to mention that edrecolomab was well tolerated and as such research has now concentrated on whether it can be of any use in other forms of cancer.
