Olaratumab is an anti-PDGFRA specific monoclonal antibody that blocks the binding of PDGF-AA, PDGF-BB and PDGF-CC (Loizos et al, 2005). Olaratumab inhibits proliferation of a number of tumor cell lines and is approved for treatment of soft tissue sarcoma (Gerber et al, 2012; Loizos et al, 2005; Matei et al, 2006; Russell et al, 2010; Stock et al, 2007).
