  • Patent number: 10279022
    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.

  • Patent number: 10179819
    Abstract: The present invention provides antibodies that bind to prostate-specific membrane antigen (PSMA), bispecific antibodies that bind to PSMA and CD3, and methods of using the same. According to certain embodiments, the antibodies of the invention bind human PSMA with high affinity and bind CD3 to induce human T cell proliferation. The invention includes antibodies that bind PSMA and CD3 and induce T cell-mediated killing of PSMA-expressing tumor cells. According to certain embodiments, the present invention provides bispecific antigen-binding molecules comprising a first antigen-binding domain that specifically binds human CD3, and a second antigen-binding molecule that specifically binds human PSMA. In certain embodiments, the bispecific antigen-binding molecules of the present invention are capable of inhibiting the growth of prostate tumors expressing PSMA.
