Epratuzumab, a humanized anti-CD22 antibody, is currently in clinical trials of B-cell lymphomas and autoimmune diseases, demonstrating therapeutic activity in non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL) and systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE). Thus, epratuzumab offers a promising option for CD22-targeted immunotherapy, yet its mechanism of action remains poorly understood.(More)
Download short circulating half-life and side effects of IFNα affect its dosing schedule and efficacy. Fusion of IFNα mor-targeting monoclonal antibody (MAb-IFNα) can enhance potency due to increased tumor localiand improved pharmacokinetics. We report the generation and characterization of the first bispecific FNα, designated 20-C2-2b, which comprises two(More)
Various constructs of bispecific antibodies (bsAbs) to redirect effector T cells for the targeted killing of tumor cells have shown considerable promise in both preclinical and clinical studies. The single-chain variable fragment (scFv)-based formats, including bispecific T-cell engager (BiTE) and dual-affinity re-targeting (DART), which provide monovalent(More)
The short circulating half-life and side effects of IFNα affect its dosing schedule and efficacy. Fusion of IFNα to a tumor-targeting mAb (mAb-IFNα) can enhance potency because of increased tumor localization and improved pharmacokinetics. We used the Dock-and-Lock method to generate C2-2b-2b, a mAb-IFNα comprising tetrameric IFNα2b site-specifically linked(More)

A major mechanism of monoclonal antibodies that selectively target the insulin-like growth factor type 1 receptor (IGF-1R) to inhibit tumor growth is by downregulating the receptor, regardless whether they are capable (antagonistic) or incapable (agonistic) of blocking the binding of cognate ligands. We have developed and characterized a novel agonistic(More)
Trop-2 has limited presence on normal tissues but is highly expressed in diverse epithelial cancers. (E1)-3s is a T-cell-redirecting trivalent bispecific antibody (bsAb), comprising an anti-CD3 scFv covalently linked to a stabilized dimer of a Trop-2-targeting Fab using Dock-and-Lock. We show for the first time that bsAb-mediated bidirectional trogocytosis(More)
With over 25 monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) currently approved and many more in development, there is considerable interest in gaining improved productivity by increasing cell density and enhancing cell survival of production cell lines. In addition, high costs and growing safety concerns with use of animal products have made the availability of serum-free(More)
Purpose: Both PARP inhibitors (PARPi) and sacituzumab govitecan (IMMU-132) are currently under clinical evaluation in triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC). We sought to investigate the combined DNA-damaging effects of the topoisomerase I (Topo I)-inhibitory activity of IMMU-132 with PARPi disruption of DNA repair in TNBC.Experimental Design:In vitro, human(More)
