  • Patent number: 11899017
    Abstract: The present disclosure relates to the finding that the ratio of circulating (i.e., peripheral blood) central memory T cells to circulating effector T cells in a cancer patient can predict whether a tumor has an inflammatory milieu or not. In addition, since having an inflammatory milieu (“hot tumor”) is a positive factor for responding to checkpoint inhibitors, e.g., PD-1 antagonists, this assay on peripheral blood can also be used to predict a response to a checkpoint inhibitor, e.g., an antibody or an antigen-binding portion thereof that specifically binds to a Programmed Death-1 (PD-1) receptor and inhibits PD-1 activity or an antibody or an antigen binding portion thereof that binds specifically to PD-1 ligand 1 (PD-L1) and inhibits PD-L1 activity.

  • Publication number: 20230322941
    Abstract: The disclosure provides for antibodies that bind CD40, including a humanized antibody and a chimeric antibody with different Fc domains. The antibodies bind CD40 and do not exhibit CD40 agonist activity. The antibodies may comprise a modified IgG1 Fc domain, and exhibit minimal activation of immature dendritic cells. Compositions comprising antibodies, methods of use for treatment of diseases involving CD40 activity, and use in the preparation of a medicament for treatment of a disease involving CD40 activity are provided.

  • Publication number: 20220073636
    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: 20210047414
    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.
