Despite the widespread use of rituximab, a chimeric monoclonal antibody with demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of non-Hodgkin’s lymphomas, there is a recognized need to develop new agents with improved efficacy. Towards this end, using XenoMouse® technology, a fully human IgG1 anti-CD20 monoclonal antibody was generated. This antibody, denoted mAb(More)
c-Met is a well-characterized receptor tyrosine kinase for hepatocyte growth factor (HGF). Compelling evidence from studies in human tumors and both cellular and animal tumor models indicates that signaling through the HGF/c-Met pathway mediates a plethora of normal cellular activities, including proliferation, survival, migration, and invasion, that are at(More)
Transgenic mice have yielded seven of the ten currently-approved human antibody drugs, making them the most successful platform for the discovery of fully human antibody therapeutics. The use of the in vivo immune system helps drive this success by taking advantage of the natural selection process that produces antibodies with desirable characteristics.(More)
Technical advances made in the 1980s and early 1990s resulted in monoclonal antibodies that are now approved for human therapy. Novel transgenic mouse strains provide a powerful technology platform for creating fully human monoclonal antibodies as therapeutics; ten such antibodies have entered clinical trials since 1998 and more are in preclinical testing.(More)

The major impediment to the development of murine monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for therapy in humans has been the difficulty in reducing their potential immunogenicity. XenoMouse¿trade mark omitted¿ mice obviate this problem while retaining the relative ease of generating mAbs from a mouse. XenoMouse strains include germline-configured, megabase-sized YACs(More)
The relationship between variable (V) gene complexity and the efficiency of B cell development was studied in strains of mice deficient in mouse antibody production and engineered with yeast artificial chromosomes (YACs) containing different sized fragments of the human heavy (H) chain and kappa light (L) chain loci. Each of the two H and the two kappa(More)
We have developed a novel method of high-throughput Multiplexed Competitive Antibody Binning (MCAB). Using only a small amount of antibody and antigen, this method enables the sorting of a large, complex panel of monoclonal antibodies into different bins based on cross-competition for antigen binding. The MCAB assay builds on Luminex multiplexing bead-based(More)
Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a significant human pathogen, and no vaccine is commercially available. Passive antibody prophylaxis using monoclonal antibodies (MAb) against protective P. aeruginosa epitopes is an alternative strategy for preventing P. aeruginosa infection, but mouse MAb are not suitable for use in humans. Polyclonal human antibodies from(More)
The c-Met proto-oncogene is a multifunctional receptor tyrosine kinase that is stimulated by its ligand, hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), to induce cell growth, motility and morphogenesis. Dysregulation of c-Met function, through mutational activation or overexpression, has been observed in many types of cancer and is thought to contribute to tumor growth(More)
