Patent
IBC Pharmaceuticals Inc. | Date: 2017-04-26

The present invention concerns compositions and methods of use of bispecific antibodies comprising at least one binding site for Trop-2 (EGP-1) and at least one binding site for CD3. The bispecific antibodies are of use for inducing an immune response against a Trop-2 expressing tumor, such as carcinoma of the esophagus, pancreas, lung, stomach, colon, rectum, urinary bladder, breast, ovary, uterus, kidney or prostate. The methods may comprising administering the bispecific antibody alone, or with one or more therapeutic agents such as antibody-drug conjugates, interferons (preferably interferon-), and/or checkpoint inhibitor antibodies. The bispecific antibody is capable of targeting effector T cells, NK cells, monocytes or neutrophils to induce leukocyte-mediated cytotoxicity of Trop-2^(+) cancer cells. The cytotoxic immune response is enhanced by co-administration of interferon, checkpoint inhibitor antibody and/or ADC.

The present invention concerns methods and compositions for forming cytokine-antibody complexes using dock-and-lock technology. In preferred embodiments, the cytokine-MAb DNL complex comprises an IgG antibody attached to two AD (anchor domain) moieties and four cytokines, each attached to a DDD (docking and dimerization domain) moiety. The DDD moieties form dimers that bind to the AD moieties, resulting in a 2:1 ratio of DDD to AD. The cytokine-MAb complex exhibits improved pharmacokinetics, with a significantly longer serum half-life than either naked cytokine or PEGylated cytokine. The cytokine-MAb complex also exhibits significantly improved in vitro and in vivo efficacy compared to cytokine alone, antibody alone, unconjugated cytokine plus antibody or cytokine-MAb DNL complexes incorporating an irrelevant antibody. In more preferred embodiment the cytokine is G-CSF, erythropoietin or INF-2b.

Disclosed herein are methods and compositions dock and lock (DNL) complexes comprising an AD moiety selected from an AKAP protein and a DDD moiety selected from a protein kinase A regulatory subunit. Also disclosed are fusion proteins comprising an AD moiety or DDD moiety attached to an effector moiety. The DDD moieties form dimers that bind to the AD moiety to form the DNL complexes. The effector moieties may be selected from a wide range of known effector moieties that produce one or more physiological effects, including but not limited to cell death. The DNL complexes may further comprise one or more diagnostic and/or therapeutic agents. The DNL complexes are of use for treating and/or diagnosing a variety of diseases or conditions.

The cytokine-MAb complex also exhibits significantly improved in vitro and in vivo efficacy compared to cytokine alone, antibody alone, unconjugated cytokine plus antibody or cytokine-MAb DNL complexes incorporating an irrelevant antibody. In a most preferred embodiment the complex comprises an anti-CD20 IgG antibody conjugated to four IFN-2b moieties, although other antibodies and cytokines have been used to form effect DNL complexes.


The present invention concerns methods and compositions for stably tethered structures of defined compositions, which may have multiple functionalities and/or binding specificities. Particular embodiments concern homodimers comprising monomers that contain a dimerization and docking domain attached to a precursor. The precursors may be virtually any molecule or structure, such as antibodies, antibody fragments, antibody analogs or mimetics, aptamers, binding peptides, fragments of binding proteins, known ligands for proteins or other molecules, enzymes, detectable labels or tags, therapeutic agents, toxins, pharmaceuticals, cytokines, interleukins, interferons, radioisotopes, proteins, peptides, peptide mimetics, polynucleotides, RNAi, oligosaccharides, natural or synthetic polymeric substances, nanoparticles, quantum dots, organic or inorganic compounds, etc. Other embodiments concern tetramers comprising a first and second homodimer, which may be identical or different. The disclosed methods and compositions provide a facile and general way to obtain homodimers, homotetramers and heterotetramers of virtually any functionality and/or binding specificity.


Patent
Immunomedics, Inc. and IBC Pharmaceuticals Inc. | Date: 2016-09-14

The present invention concerns methods and compositions for forming immunotoxin complexes having a high efficacy and low systemic toxicity. In preferred embodiments, the toxin moiety is a ranpirnase (Rap), such as Rap(Q). In more preferred embodiments, the immunotoxin is made using dock-and-lock (DNL) technology. The immunotoxin exhibits improved pharmacokinetics, with a longer serum half-life and significantly greater efficacy compared to toxin alone, antibody alone, unconjugated toxin plus antibody or even other types of toxin-antibody constructs. In a most preferred embodiment the construct comprises an anti-Trop-2 antibody conjugated to Rap, although other combinations of antibodies, antibody fragments and toxins may be used to form the subject immunotoxins. The immunotoxins are of use to treat a variety of diseases, such as cancer, autoimmune disease or immune dysfunction.

IBC Pharmaceuticals Inc. | Date: 2016-10-10

The present invention concerns compositions and methods of use of T-cell redirecting complexes, with at least one binding site for a T-cell antigen and at least one binding site for an antigen on a diseased cell or pathogen. Preferably, the complex is a DNL complex. More preferably, the complex comprises a bispecific antibody (bsAb). Most preferably, the bsAb is an anti-CD3anti-CD19 bispecific antibody, although antibodies against other T-cell antigens and/or disease-associated antigens may be used. The complex is capable of targeting effector T cells to induce T-cell-mediated cytotoxicity of cells associated with a disease, such as cancer, autoimmune disease or infectious disease. The cytotoxic immune response is enhanced by co-administration of interferon-based agents that comprise interferon-, interferon-, interferon-1, interferon-2 or interferon-3.
