  • Product overview

    Cetuximab ELISA Kit (Erbitux®) (ab237648) has been developed for specific quantification of Cetuximab concentration in human serum or plasma with high sensitivity and reproducibility. The density of color is proportional to the amount of Cetuximab captured from the samples and can be quantified when compared with standard curve.


    Cetuximab (Erbitux®) is a chimeric monoclonal antibody of the immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) and FDA-approved epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) inhibitor. Preclinical studies have shown that cetuximab enhances the antitumour effects of chemotherapy as well as radiotherapy by inhibiting cell proliferation, angiogenesis and metastasis and by promoting apoptosis is used for the treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer, metastatic non-small cell lung cancer and head and neck cancer. Cetuximab blocks growth factor-induced activation of the downstream mitogen-activated protein kinase, inhibiting cell proliferation. It also decreases angiogenic factors, inhibits tumor-cell invasion and metastasis via downregulation of matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and VEGF, and promotes apoptosis by upregulating apoptotic protein, Bax, with the help of other chemotherapeutic agents.
