Protein drugs consisting of an antibody joined to a toxin molecule. Immunotoxins can be made by linking toxin and antibody molecules chemically, or by fusing the genes for the toxin and the antibody. The antibody portion of the molecule facilitates binding to a target molecule or cell, and the toxin inactivates or kills the target molecule or cell.
