  • Publication number: 20160251440
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to bispecific polypeptides comprising a first and a second immunoglobulin single variable domain (ISV), wherein said first ISV binds to a first target on the surface of a cancer cell with a low affinity and, when bound inhibits a function of said first target, and a said second ISV binds to a second target on the surface of said cell with a high affinity and wherein said first target is different from said second target. The present invention further discloses methods for identifying and making the same.

  • Publication number: 20150218281
    Abstract: The present invention relates to immunoglobulin single variable domain sequences that are directed against (as defined herein) OX40L, as well as to compounds or constructs, and in particular proteins and polypeptides, that comprise or essentially consist of one or more such immunoglobulin single variable domain sequences. In particular these immunoglobulin single variable domain sequences can block binding of OX40L to OX40. The immunoglobulin single variable domains, compounds and constructs can be used for prophylactic, therapeutic or diagnostic purposes, such as for the treatment of inflammatory disease and/or disorder such as e.g. asthma, allergic asthma, chronic colitis, Crohn's disease, inflammatory bowel disease, and/or arthrosclerosis.
