- anti-CTLA-4/LAG-3 bispecific antibody XmAb22841
An Fc-engineered bispecific antibody directed against the human negative immunoregulatory checkpoint receptors cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA4; CTLA-4) and lymphocyte activation gene 3 protein (LAG3; LAG-3; CD223), with potential immune checkpoint inhibitory and antineoplastic activities. Upon administration, anti-CTLA-4/LAG-3 bispecific antibody XmAb22841 targets and binds to both CTLA-4 and LAG-3 expressed on T cells in the tumor microenvironment (TME). Both CTLA-4 and LAG-3 are inhibitory receptors and members of the immunoglobulin superfamily (IgSF); they are overexpressed by regulatory T cells (Tregs) in the TME where they downregulate T-cell activation and proliferation. Dual checkpoint blockade of CTLA-4 and LAG-3 with XmAb22841 may enhance T-cell activation and proliferation more than the blockade of either immune checkpoint receptor alone. The engineered Fc domain increases the stability and half-life of the antibody. Check for active clinical trials using this agent. (NCI Thesaurus)
