The epithelial cell adhesion molecule (EpCAM) is a key component of the cell cytoskeleton and its expression is enhanced in almost all solid tumors. This makes it one of the favorable molecules for immunotoxin based therapies. One promising immunotoxin to have been generated in early 2000s [95] is VB4-845, or commercially called Oportuzumabmonatox. The IT is a fusion between anti-EpCAMscFv and Pseudomonas exotoxin A. Currently in Phase II clinical trials, the IT has been promising as recurrent intratumoral injection of the IT has not resulted in any immunogenicity and it has been well tolerated as well.

The antibody used for IT preparation is first activated with the cross-linker, where it binds to the ε-NH2 group of lysine residues through the NHS ester. The antibody-cross-linker complex is then treated with the A chain, of type II RIP, or single chain RIPs, wherein the toxin binds to the cross-linker via the disulfide linkage, releasing a pyridine-2-thione group to form the immunotoxin. b Recombinant immunotoxins: Owing to the ease of production of bacterial toxins, they are used in the construction of recombinant immunotoxins.
