Immunotherapeutic molecules currently being used in the clinic are powerful immune modulators, but their effectiveness can be inconsistent between patients. Clinicians and scientists use different assays to evaluate why immunotherapies fail in the clinic. The flow cytometry-based receptor occupancy (RO) assay is a critical tool for evaluating the effectiveness of immunotherapies in the clinic. Here are three features of flow cytometry-based RO assays that give them clinical value.
