Antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), also referred to as antibody-dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity, is a mechanism of cell-mediated immune defence whereby an effector cell of the immune system actively lyses a target cell, whose membrane-surface antigens have been bound by specific antibodies. It is one of the mechanisms through which antibodies, as part of the humoral immune response, can act to limit and contain infection.

Assessment of ADCC via GFP release
Incubation of MCF7 target cells with both Trastuzumab and PMA activated Thp1 effector cells induces a loss of intracellular GFP.
