trebananib
An angiopoietin (Ang) 1 and 2 neutralizing peptibody, with potential antiangiogenic activity. Trebananib targets and binds to Ang1 and Ang2, thereby preventing the interaction of the angiopoietins with their target tie2 receptors. This may inhibit angiogenesis and may eventually lead to an inhibition of tumor cell proliferation. Check for active clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
