  • Publication number: 20190256594
    Abstract: The present invention provides isolated monoclonal antibodies that specifically bind LAG-3, and have optimized functional properties compared to previously described anti-LAG-3 antibodies, such as antibody 25F7 (US 2011/0150892 A1). These properties include reduced deamidation sites, while still retaining high affinity binding to human LAG-3, and physical (i.e., thermal and chemical) stability. 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, as well as immunoconjugates, bispecific molecules and pharmaceutical compositions comprising the antibodies. The present invention 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. Combination therapy, in which the antibodies are co-administered with at least one additional immunostimulatory antibody, is also provided.

  • Publication number: 20180333502
    Abstract: Provided herein are heavy chain constant regions (referred to as “modified heavy chain constant regions”), or functionally equivalent fragments thereof, that enhance biological properties of antibodies relative to the same antibodies in unmodified form. An exemplary modified heavy chain constant region includes an IgG2 hinge and three constant domains (i.e., CH1, CH2, and CH3 domains), wherein one or more of the constant region domains are of a non-IgG2 isotype (e.g., IgG1, IgG3 or IgG4). The heavy chain constant region may comprise wildtype human IgG domain sequences, or variants of these sequences. Also provided herein are methods for enhancing certain biological properties of antibodies that comprise a non-IgG2 hinge, such as internalization, agonism and antagonism, wherein the method comprises replacing the non-IgG2 hinge of the antibody with an IgG2 hinge.
