  • Publication number: 20240041995
    Abstract: The present invention provides isolated monoclonal antibodies (e.g., humanized and human monoclonal antibodies) that bind to human Inducible T Cell COStimulator (ICOS) and exhibit therapeutically desirable functional properties, e.g., the ability to stimulate human ICOS activity. Nucleic acid molecules encoding the antibodies of the invention, expression vectors, host cells, and methods for expressing the antibodies of the invention are also provided. Immunoconjugates, bispecific molecules, and pharmaceutical compositions comprising the antibodies of the invention are also provided. The antibodies of the invention can be used, for example, as an agonist to stimulate or enhance an immune response in a subject, e.g., antigen-specific T cell responses against a tumor or viral antigen. The antibodies of the invention can also be used in combination with other antibodies (e.g., PD-1, PD-L1, and/or CTLA-4 antibodies) to treat, for example, cancer.

  • Publication number: 20230322919
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides isolated monoclonal antibodies that specifically bind to LAG-3 with high affinity, particularly human monoclonal antibodies. Preferably, the antibodies bind human LAG-3. In certain embodiments, the antibodies bind both human and monkey LAG-3 but do not bind mouse LAG-3. The invention provides anti-LAG-3 antibodies that can inhibit the binding of LAG-3 to MHC Class II molecules and that can stimulate antigen-specific T cell responses. Nucleic acid molecules encoding the antibodies of the invention, expression vectors, host cells and methods for expressing the antibodies of the invention are also provided. Immunoconjugates, bispecific molecules and pharmaceutical compositions comprising the antibodies of the invention are also provided. This disclosure also provides methods for detecting LAG-3, as well as methods for treating stimulating immune responses using an anti-LAG-3 antibody of the invention.

  • Publication number: 20230287064
    Abstract: The present disclosure provides a method for enhancing the anti-tumor efficacy of an Fc fusion protein which binds specifically to a target, e.g., a co-inhibitory or co-stimulatory receptor of ligand, on a T cell in a subject afflicted with a cancer or a disease caused by an infectious agent and alters the activity of the immunomodulatory target, thereby potentiating an endogenous immune response against cells of the cancer or the infectious agent, wherein the method comprises selecting, designing or modifying the Fc region of the Fc fusion protein so as to enhance the binding of said Fc region to an activating Fc receptor (FcR). The disclosure also provides an Fc fusion protein produced by said method and its use in treating a subject afflicted with a cancer or a disease caused by an infectious agent.
