Volociximab (also known as M200) is a chimeric monoclonal antibody jointly developed by PDL BioPharma and Biogen Idec for treatment of a variety of advanced solid tumors. It binds to and inhibits the functional activity of α5β1 integrin.[1]

It is thought to reduce metastases. Early results show potential in renal cell cancers.[citation needed]
