Zolimomab aritox is a mouse monoclonal antibody which has been investigated for the treatment of systemic lupus erythematosus[1] and graft-versus-host disease[2], but the studies failed to show positive effects of the drug.

It is an anti-CD5 antibody which is linked to the A chain of the ricin protein (which is reflected by the aritox in the drug's name).[3]
