  • Patent number: 11866495
    Abstract: The present invention provides recombinant antigen-binding regions and antibodies and functional fragments containing such antigen-binding regions that are specific for human and Macaca fascicularis CEACAM6 (Carcinoembryonic antigen-related cell adhesion molecule 6, CD66c, Non-specific crossreacting antigen, NCA, NCA-50/90), and which do not significantly cross-react with the closely related human CEACAM1, human CEACAM3, and human CEACAM5. The invention further provides methods to generate this kind of antibodies. The antibodies, accordingly, can be used to treat cancer and other disorders and conditions associated with expression of the CEACAM6. The invention also provides nucleic acid sequences encoding the foregoing antibodies, vectors containing the same, pharmaceutical compositions and kits with instructions for use.

  • Patent number: 11866473
    Abstract: The present invention relates to peptides, proteins, nucleic acids and cells for use in immunotherapeutic methods. In particular, the present invention relates to the immunotherapy of cancer. The present invention furthermore relates to tumor-associated T-cell peptide epitopes, alone or in combination with other tumor-associated peptides that can for example serve as active pharmaceutical ingredients of vaccine compositions that stimulate anti-tumor immune responses, or to stimulate T cells ex vivo and transfer into patients. Peptides bound to molecules of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC), or peptides as such, can also be targets of antibodies, soluble T-cell receptors, and other binding molecules.
