Bladder cancer is one of the most common malignancies. However, there is no ideal therapy to cure bladder cancer so far, especially invasive carcinoma. Here, we developed a new antibody-based drug BCMab1-Ra, which was generated by conjugation of BCMab1 (a new monoclonal antibody that specifically recognized the aberrantly glycosylated Integrin a3b1 in bladder cancer) with the ricin A chain (Ra). A patient with multiple bladder cancer received intravescical administration of BCMab1-Ra treatment as a volunteer. After 30 weeks of treatment, no tumor was observed by cystoscope examination. We did not observe any local or systemic side effects. Human anti-mouse antibody (HAMA) was not detectable in the circulation. Results follow-up showed no tumor had been found in every half year review in 3 years.
