The device for electrochemically synthesizing intermediate species of a chemical entity which comprises an electrochemical oxidation cell including a first working electrode and a first counter electrode, capable, when these first electrodes are subject to an electric potential, of generating the intermediate species by oxidation of a solution introduced into the electrochemical oxidation cell and comprising the chemical entity, and an electrochemical stabilization cell including a second working electrode and a second counter electrode respectively distinct from the first working electrode and counter electrode, capable, when these second electrodes are subject to an electric potential, of achieving reduction of a solution. The stabilization cell is connected in series to the oxidation cell so as to allow continuous reduction of the intermediate species generated in the oxidation cell. Applications can be in the pharmaceutical, agri-food and environment fields.

The monoclonal antibodies that only recognise the O-acetylated form of the GD2 ganglioside, or fragments of the antibody, for the diagnosis and the treatment of cancers in which the cells express the O-acetylated GD2, the antibody or the fragment recognising the O-acetylated GD2 molecules expressed by the tumoral cells and not recognising the GD2 molecules expressed at the surface of the peripheral nerves, in order to increase the specificity of the diagnosis and reduce the toxicity of the treatments. Also artificially modified antibodies advantageously used for treating and diagnosing cancers in which the cells express the O-acetylated GD2.
