Taxoids bearing methyldisulfanyl(alkanoyl) groups for taxoid-antibody immunoconjugates were designed, synthesized and their activities evaluated. A highly cytotoxic C-10 methyldisulfanylpropanoyl taxoid was conjugated to monoclonal antibodies recognizing the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) expressed in human squamous cancers. These conjugates were shown to possess remarkable target-specific antitumor activity in vivo against EGFR-expressing A431 tumor xenografts in severe combined immune deficiency mice, resulting in complete inhibition of tumor growth in all the treated mice.
