  • Publication number: 20230220022
    Abstract: Disclosed are a novel therapeutic means effective and practical against cancer, and a novel substance useful as such a therapeutic means. Provided are novel peptides derived from a partial region of HMGN1, HMGN2, HMGN4 or HMGN5, and anti-cancer agents and anti-cancer effect enhancers containing the peptide as an active ingredient. The peptide of the present invention has an anti-tumor effect even independently, and exerts a remarkably excellent anti-tumor effect particularly when used in combination with an immune checkpoint regulator, or an anti-CD4 antibody or antigen-binding fragment thereof.

  • Patent number: 11168137
    Abstract: Disclosed is a means for reducing side effects of an immune checkpoint regulator that is used as an anticancer drug or the like. A side-effect reducing agent according to the present invention comprises as an effective ingredient an anti-CD4 antibody having a high cytotoxic activity, or an anti-CD4 antibody or antigen-binding fragment thereof which antibody or fragment comprises a cytotoxic component bound thereto. The anti-CD4 antibody is a human-type chimeric antibody, humanized antibody or human antibody against human CD4. The immune checkpoint regulator may be, for example, an anti-PD-L1 antibody, an antagonistic anti-CTLA-4 antibody, or an agonistic anti-OX40 antibody.

  • Patent number: 10746726
    Abstract: Means that enables monitoring of an anticancer effect of an anti-CD4 antibody or an anticancer drug targeting an immune checkpoint is disclosed. The method for testing a therapeutic effect of a cancer therapy of the present invention is a method for testing a therapeutic effect of an anticancer drug comprising as an effective ingredient an anti-CD4 antibody or an anticancer drug targeting an immune checkpoint, which method comprises investigation of expression of (1) at least one immune checkpoint receptor, (2) CD8, and (3) at least one cell surface molecule selected from the group consisting of CD44 and CD45RO, on T cells using a sample derived from a patient who received the anticancer drug. Induction of a T cell population which is positive for the immune checkpoint molecule (1) and positive for CD8, and which shows high expression of CD44 and/or high expression of CD45RO, indicates that said anticancer drug is producing a therapeutic effect in said patient.

  • Publication number: 20190125867
    Abstract: Disclosed is a novel means effective for treatment, metastasis-inhibition, and recurrence-inhibition of human solid cancer. A therapeutic agent for solid cancer according to the present invention comprises as an effective ingredient an anti-CD4 antibody having a high cytotoxic activity, or an anti-CD4 antibody or antigen-binding fragment thereof which antibody or fragment comprises a cytotoxic component bound thereto. Said anti-CD4 antibody is a human-type chimeric antibody, humanized antibody or human antibody against human CD4. The therapeutic agent of the present invention produces still higher effects by combined use with antagonist or agonist against immune checkpoint molecule, small molecule anticancer agents, or the like. The therapeutic agent is also effective in suppressing recurrence and metastasis of solid cancer.
