Local immune checkpoint inhibition

Ref-Nr: TA-B75080


Kurzfassung

  • Trispecific molecules (LiCADs, local inhibitor checkpoint antibody derivatives) enable local (tumor) immune checkpoint inhibition, which avoids systemic side effects
  • LiCADs comprise binding sites with specificity for a tumor cell, for an effector cell and for a checkpoint molecule
  • Checkpoint binding is restricted and concentrated to tumor cells avoiding undesired toxicity to healthy cells and accordingly systemic side effects

 

 


Hintergrund

Antibodies targeting immune checkpoint molecules offer promising tools in cancer immunotherapy. However, drawbacks of this approach are systemic side effects since immune ­checkpoint molecules are expressed both on healthy and tumor cells.

Lösung

Here novel trispecific molecules (LiCADs, local inhibitor checkpoint antibody derivatives) comprising binding sites with specificity for a tumor cell, for an effector cell and for a checkpoint molecule, respectively, are presented. In this construct the affinity of the checkpoint molecule binding site is rather weak especially compared to the tumor targeting binding site. Thus checkpoint binding is restricted and concentrated to tumor cells avoiding undesired toxicity to healthy cells and accordingly systemic side effects.

LiCAD molecules consisting of:

  • the endogenous SIRPα domainto block the CD47- SIRPα signaling pathway
  • a single chain variable fragment (scFv) binding to a tumor antigen
  • a scFv to trigger recruitment and activation of effector cells

Vorteile

  • Local (tumor) immune checkpoint inhibition avoiding systemic side effects
  • Exchangeable modules (binding elements) adaptable for specific tumor and/or effector cells
