Angiochem Demonstrates Peptide Antibody Conjugate That Successfully Crosses the Blood Brain Barrier and Increases Survival in HER-2 Positive Brain Tumors
Dec 16 13
Angiochem announced that its peptide-antibody conjugate, ANG4043 successfully crosses the BBB, reduces tumor size and significantly increases survival in mice with intracranial HER2-positive brain tumors. These results underscore the potential for development of novel antitumor therapeutics for neuro-oncology indications. The data presentation revealed that the company's technology has been successfully applied to monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) for creation of brain-penetrant antibody conjugates of anti-Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2 (HER2). Angiochem researchers described the ANG4043 preclinical results, including: In vivo, in mice that were implanted intracranially with HER2+ human breast tumor cells (BT-474), it was observed: ANG4043 crosses the BBB and reaches the tumor using near-infrared imaging, where a strong signal is observed in brain following IV administration of fluorescent ANG4043, but not of fluorescent anti-HER2. Reduction in tumor size correlating with increased survival. In vitro, ANG4043 binding affinity for HER2 receptor and anti-proliferative properties were similar to the native, unconjugated mAb.
