Chemoimmunotherapy: An immunotherapeutic approach to metastatic pancreatic cancer having failed all forms of chemotherapy has been developed and has finished phase II trials. The results are produced by antibody Neo 102 targeting a post translational modification of MUC5ac which is an oncofetal protein expressing mucin production in the GI tract of the fetus. The mAb targets the protein by ADCC of better than 70% .
