A monoclonal antibody to the human epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor was conjugated with polylysine and the resulting conjugate was affinity-linked with DNA (gene). This novel gene delivery system utilizes receptor-mediated endocytosis and would be especially suitable for gene therapy for EGF receptor-overproducing squamous cell carcinomas.
