The present invention concerns compositions and methods of use of bispecific antibodies comprising at least one anti-TNF- antibody or antigen-binding fragment thereof and at least one anti-IL-6 antibody or antigen-binding fragment thereof. Preferably, the bispecific antibody is in the form of a DNL complex. The anti-TNF- or anti-IL-6 antibodies may comprise specific CDR sequences disclosed herein. The compositions and methods are of use to treat autoimmune disease, immune system dysfunction or inflammatory disease, as disclosed herein.

The present invention concerns methods and compositions for stably tethered structures of defined compositions with multiple functionalities and/or binding specificities. Particular embodiments concern stably tethered structures comprising a homodimer of a first monomer, comprising a dimerization and docking domain attached to a first precursor, and a second monomer comprising an anchoring domain attached to a second precursor. The first and second 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. The disclosed methods and compositions provide a simple, easy to purify way to obtain any binary compound attached to any monomeric compound, or any trinary compound.

Disclosed are compositions and methods comprising combinations of anti-CD74 antibodies with a therapeutic agent that is attached to the anti-CD74 antibody or separately administered. Preferably, the therapeutic agent is an antibody that binds to an antigen different from CD74, such as CD19, CD20, CD21, CD22, CD23, CD37, CD40, CD40L, CD52, CD80, IL-6, CXCR4 or HLA-DR. However, the therapeutic agent may be an immunomodulator, a cytokine, a toxin or other known therapeutic agent. Preferably, the anti-CD74 antibody is part of a DNL complex. More preferably, combination therapy with the anti-CD74 antibody and therapeutic agent is more effective than antibody alone, therapeutic agent alone, or the combination of unconjugated anti-CD74 antibody and therapeutic agent. Administration of combination induces apoptosis of target cells in diseases in which CD74 is overexpressed, such as solid tumors, B-cell lymphomas or leukemias, autoimmune disease, immune dysfunction disease or diabetes.

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

The present invention concerns methods and compositions for making and using bioactive assemblies of defined compositions, which may have multiple functionalities and/or binding specificities. In particular embodiments, the bioactive assembly is formed using dock-and-lock (DNL) methodology, which takes advantage of the specific binding interaction between dimerization and docking domains (DDD) and anchoring domains (AD) to form the assembly. In various embodiments, one or more effectors may be attached to a DDD or AD sequence. Complementary AD or DDD sequences may be attached to an adaptor module that forms the core of the bioactive assembly, allowing formation of the assembly through the specific DDD/AD binding interactions. Such assemblies may be attached to a wide variety of effector moieties for treatment, detection and/or diagnosis of a disease, pathogen infection or other medical or veterinary condition.
