Steven G. Nadler has filed for patents to protect the following inventions. This listing includes patent applications that are pending as well as patents that have already been granted by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO).

  • Patent number: 10196451
    Abstract: Antibody polypeptides that specifically bind human CD40L are provided. The antibody polypeptides do not activate platelets. The antibody polypeptides are useful in the treatment of diseases involving CD40L activation, such as graft-related diseases and autoimmune diseases. The antibody polypeptides may be domain antibodies (dAbs) comprising a single VH or VK domain. The half-life of the antibody polypeptides may be increased by modifying the antibody polypeptides to be dual specific reagents that can also bind human serum albumin (HSA) or another antigen.

  • Publication number: 20180142023
    Abstract: Disclosed are domain antibodies that monovalently bind CD28. Domain antibodies that are monovalent for binding of CD28 can inhibit CD28 activity. In one aspect, a domain antibody consists of or comprises a single immunoglobulin variable domain that specifically binds and antagonizes the activity of CD28, in an aspect, without substantially agonizing CD28 activity. In another aspect, the domain antibody is a human domain antibody. The disclosure further encompasses methods of antagonizing CD80 and/or CD86 interactions with CD28 in an individual and methods of treating diseases or disorders involving CD80 and/or CD86 interactions with CD28, the methods involving administering a domain antibody to the individual.

  • Publication number: 20170240636
    Abstract: Methods of treating autoimmune diseases, such as systemic lupus erythematosus using domain antibodies that specifically bind human CD28 are provided. The methods may comprise at least one administration cycle comprising one dose of the domain antibody. The method reduces symptoms of systemic lupus erythematosus compared to placebo.

  • Publication number: 20170051059
    Abstract: Methods of treating renal transplant rejection using anti-CD40L domain antibodies are provided. The anti-CD40L dAbs are less likely to cause platelet aggregation and thus cause thromboembolism. Appropriate anti-CD40L dAbs doses and administration regimens are also provided. Combination treatments for transplant rejection, particularly renal transplant rejection, using anti-CD40L dAbs, a CTLA4 mutant molecule (e.g., belatacept) and/or anti-CD28 optionally with conventional immunosuppressive renal transplant therapy are provided.
