  • Patent number: 10730936
    Abstract: Antibodies or antigen-binding fragments thereof are engineered to bind Transforming Growth Factor-? (TGF?). TGF?-isoform selective antibodies or antigen-binding fragments thereof may selectively bind human TGF?1, compared to human TGF?2 and human TGF?3, or may selectively bind human TGF?3, compared to human TGF?1 and human TGF?2. The design of the antibodies or antigen-binding fragments thereof is facilitated by a co-crystal structure of a recombinant Fab fragment of GC1008 bound to TGF?2 and by another co-crystal structure of the scFv version of GC1008 bound to TGF?1.
