Antibody-drug conjugates enhance the antitumor effects of antibodies and reduce adverse systemic effects of potent cytotoxic drugs. However, conventional drug conjugation strategies yield heterogenous conjugates with relatively narrow therapeutic index (maximum tolerated dose/curative dose). Using leads from our previously described phage display-based(More)
MUC16 is a well-validated cell surface marker for serous adenocarcinomas of the ovary and other gynecologic malignancies that is distinguished by highly repetitive sequences ("mucin repeats") in the extracellular domain (ECD). We produced and compared two monoclonal antibodies: one (11D10) recognizing a unique, nonrepeating epitope in the ECD and another(More)
3A5 is a novel antibody that binds repeated epitopes within CA125, an ovarian tumor antigen that is shed into the circulation. Binding to shed antigen may limit the effectiveness of therapeutic antibodies because of unproductive immune complex (IC) formation and/or altered antibody distribution. To evaluate this possibility, we characterized the impact of(More)
Melanocytes uniquely express specialized genes required for pigment formation, some of which are maintained following their transformation to melanoma. Here we exploit this property to selectively target melanoma with an antibody drug conjugate (ADC) specific to PMEL17, the product of the SILV pigment-forming gene. We describe new PMEL17 antibodies that(More)
The American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS) National Biotechnology Conference Short Course "Translational Challenges in Developing Antibody-Drug Conjugates (ADCs)," held May 24, 2012 in San Diego, CA, was organized by members of the Pharmacokinetics, Pharmacodynamics and Drug Metabolism section of AAPS. Representatives from the(More)
Onartuzumab, a humanized, monovalent monoclonal anti-MET antibody, antagonizes MET signaling by inhibiting binding of its ligand, hepatocyte growth factor (HGF). We investigated the effects of onartuzumab on cell-associated and circulating (shed) MET (sMET) and circulating HGF in vitro and nonclinically to determine their utility as pharmacodynamic(More)
Post-translational modification catalyzed by phosphopantetheinyl transferases (PPTases) has previously been used to site-specifically label proteins with structurally diverse molecules. PPTase catalysis results in covalent modification of a serine residue in acyl/peptidyl carrier proteins and their surrogate substrates which are typically fused to the N- or(More)
Onartuzumab, a humanized, monovalent monoclonal anti-MET antibody, antagonizes MET signaling by inhibiting binding of its ligand, hepatocyte growth factor (HGF).We investigated the effects of onartuzumabon cell-associated and circulating (shed)MET (sMET) and circulating HGF in vitro and nonclinically to determine their utility aspharmacodynamic biomarkers(More)
