Bispecific antibodies have been extensively studied in vitro and in vivo for their use in redirected tumor cell lysis. A particular challenge of bispecific antibody constructs that recognize the invariant CD3 signaling complex is a controlled polyclonal activation of T cells that, ideally, is exquisitely dependent on the presence of target cells. Otherwise,(More)
EpCAM (CD326) is one of the most frequently and highly expressed tumor-associated antigens known and recently has also been found on cancer stem cells derived from human breast, colon, prostate, and pancreas tumors. However, like many other tumor-associated antigens used for antibody-based immunotherapeutic approaches, EpCAM is expressed on normal tissues(More)
GM-CSF (granulocyte-macrophage colony stimulating factor) plays a central role in inflammatory processes. Treatment with antibodies neutralizing murine GM-CSF showed significant therapeutic effects in mouse models of inflammatory diseases. We constructed by phage display technology a human scFv, which could potently neutralize human GM-CSF. At first, a(More)
