Insulin-like growth factors (IGF), IGF-I and IGF-II, are small polypeptides involved in regulating cell proliferation, survival, differentiation, and transformation. IGF activities are mediated through binding and activation of IGF-1R or insulin receptor isoform A (IR-A). The role of the IGF-1R pathway in promoting tumor growth and survival is well(More)
ADAM17 is the primary sheddase for HER pathway ligands. We report the discovery of a potent and specific ADAM17 inhibitory antibody, MEDI3622, which induces tumor regression or stasis in many EGFR-dependent tumor models. The inhibitory activity of MEDI3622 correlated with EGFR activity both in a series of tumor models across several indications as well in(More)
The hedgehog pathway has been implicated in the tumorigenesis, tumor progression, and metastasis of numerous human cancers. We generated the first fully human hedgehog antibody MEDI-5304 and characterized its antitumor activity and preclinical toxicology. MEDI-5304 bound sonic hedgehog (SHH) and Indian hedgehog (IHH) with low picomolar affinity and(More)

Protein phosphorylation frequently results in the subcellular redistribution of key signaling molecules, and this spatial change is critical for their activity. Here we have probed the effects of a Cdc25 inhibitor, 2-(2-mercaptoethanol)-3-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone, or Compound 5, on the spatial regulation and activation kinetics of tyrosine(More)
Based on the previously described roles of doxorubicin in immunogenic cell death, both doxorubicin and liposomal doxorubicin (Doxil) were evaluated for their ability to boost the antitumor response of different cancer immunotherapies including checkpoint blockers (anti-PD-L1, PD-1, and CTLA-4 mAbs) and TNF receptor agonists (OX40 and GITR ligand fusion(More)
Immunogenic cell death (ICD) is the process by which certain cytotoxic drugs induce apoptosis of tumor cells in a manner that stimulates the immune system. In this study, we investigated whether antibody-drug conjugates (ADCS) conjugated with pyrrolobenzodiazepine dimer (PBD) or tubulysin payloads induce ICD, modulate the immune microenvironment, and could(More)
IPI-504 is a novel, highly soluble small-molecule inhibitor of heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90), a protein chaperone essential for regulating homeostasis of oncoproteins and cell signaling proteins. Human epidermal growth factor receptor 2 (HER2; ErbB2) oncoprotein, expressed in a subset of metastatic breast cancers, is a Hsp90 client protein. In this study,(More)
