The present invention relates to CD3-binding molecules capable of binding to human and non-human CD3, and in particular to such molecules that are cross-reactive with CD3 of a non-human mammal (e.g., a cynomolgus monkey). The invention also pertains to uses of such antibodies and antigen-binding fragments in the treatment of cancer, autoimmune and/or inflammatory diseases and other conditions.


The present invention is directed to bi-specific diabodies that comprise two or more polypeptide chains and which possess at least one Epitope-Binding Site that is immunospecific for an epitope of PD-1 and at least one Epitope-Binding Site that is immunospecific for an epitope of LAG-3 (i.e., a PD-I x LAG-3 bi-specific diabody). More preferably, the present invention is directed to bi-specific diabodies that comprise four polypeptide chains and which possess two Epitope-Binding Sites that are immunospecific for one (or two) epitope(s) of PD-1 and two Epitope-Binding Site that are immunospecific for one (or two) epitope(s) of LAG-3 (i.e., a PD-1 x LAG-3 bi-specific, tetra-valent diabody).


The present invention relates to Tri-Specific Binding Molecules, which are multi-chain polypeptide molecules that possess three Binding Domains and are thus capable of mediating coordinated binding to three epitopes. The Tri-Specific Binding Molecule is preferably characterized in possessing binding domains that permit it to immunospecifically bind to: (1) an epitope of a first Cancer Antigen, (2) an epitope of a second Cancer Antigen, and (3) an epitope of a molecule that is expressed on the surface of an immune system effector cell, and are thus capable of localizing an immune system effector cell to a cell that expresses a Cancer Antigen, so as to thereby facilitate the killing of such cancer cell.


The present invention is directed to a combination therapy involving the administration of: (1) a bi-specific molecule capable of specifically binding to CD19 and to CD3 (i.e., a CD19CD3 bi-specific molecule), and (2) a Brutons Tyrosine Kinase (BTK) inhibitor for the treatment of disease, in particular treatment of a disease associated with or characterized by the expression of CD19. Preferably, such a CD19CD3 bi-specific molecules are bi-specific monovalent diabodies. The invention is directed to pharmaceutical compositions that contain such a CD19CD3 bi-specific molecule, a BTK inhibitor, or a combination of such agents. The invention is additionally directed to methods for the use of such pharmaceutical compositions in the treatment of disease, in particular, treatment of a cancer associated with or characterized by the expression of CD19.

The present invention relates to Tri-Specific Binding Molecules, which are multichain polypeptide molecules that possess three Binding Domains and are thus capable of mediating coordinated binding to three epitopes. The Binding Domains may be selected such that the Tri-Specific Binding Molecules are capable of binding to any three different epitopes. Such epitopes may be epitopes of the same antigen or epitopes of two or three different antigens. In a preferred embodiment, one of such epitopes will be capable of binding to CD3, the second of such epitopes will be capable of binding to CD8, and the third of such epitopes will be capable of binding to an epitope of a Disease-Associated Antigen. The invention also provides a novel RORl -binding antibody, as well as derivatives thereof and uses for such compositions.

The present invention is directed to diabody molecules and uses thereof in the treatment of a variety of diseases and disorders, including immunological disorders, infectious disease, intoxication and cancers. The diabody molecules of the invention comprise two polypeptide chains that associate to form at least two epitope binding sites, which may recognize the same or different epitopes on the same or differing antigens. Additionally, the antigens may be from the same or different molecules. The individual polypeptide chains of the diabody molecule may be covalently bound through non-peptide bond covalent bonds, such as, but not limited to, disulfide bonding of cysteine residues located within each polypeptide chain. In particular embodiments, the diabody molecules of the present invention further comprise an Fc region, which allows antibody-like functionality to engineered into the molecule.
