A new immunochemical strategy for triple-negative breast cancer therapy.

Sci Rep 2021 Jul 21;11(1):14875. Epub 2021 Jul 21.

Department of Chemistry, The Scripps Research Institute, La Jolla, CA, 92037, USA.

Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a highly diverse group of malignant neoplasms which tend to have poor outcomes, and the development of new targets and strategies to treat these cancers is sorely needed. Antibody-drug conjugate (ADC) therapy has been shown to be a promising targeted therapy for treating many cancers, but has only rarely been tried in patients with TNBC. A major reason the efficacy of ADC therapy in the setting of TNBC has not been more fully investigated is the lack of appropriate target molecules. Read More

Rapid development of neutralizing and diagnostic SARS-COV-2 mouse monoclonal antibodies.

Sci Rep 2021 05 6;11(1):9682. Epub 2021 May 6.

Immunodiagnostic Development Team/Reagent Diagnostic Services Branch (RDSB)/DSR/NCEZID/CDC, 1600 Clifton Rd NE., Atlanta, GA, 30333, USA.

The need for high-affinity, SARS-CoV-2-specific monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) is critical in the face of the global COVID-19 pandemic, as such reagents can have important diagnostic, research, and therapeutic applications. Of greatest interest is the ~ 300 amino acid receptor binding domain (RBD) within the S1 subunit of the spike protein because of its key interaction with the human angiotensin converting enzyme 2 (hACE2) receptor present on many cell types, especially lung epithelial cells. We report here the development and functional characterization of 29 nM-affinity mouse SARS-CoV-2 mAbs created by an accelerated immunization and hybridoma screening process. Read More

Daratumumab for the Management of Newly Diagnosed and Relapsed/Refractory Multiple Myeloma: Current and Emerging Treatments.

Front Oncol 2020 17;10:624661. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

Hematology Unit, Istituto Scientifico Romagnolo per lo Studio e la Cura dei Tumori (IRST) Istituto di Ricovero e Cura a Carattere Scientifico (IRCCS), Meldola, Italy.

Immunotherapy is changing the paradigm of multiple myeloma (MM) management and daratumumab is the first-in-class human monoclonal antibody targeting CD38 approved for the treatment of this malignancy. Daratumumab exerts anti-myeloma activity by different mechanisms of action as antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC), antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis (ADCP), complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC), direct apoptosis, and immunomodulation. After GEN501 and SIRIUS trials showed efficacy of daratumumab monotherapy in heavily pretreated relapsed-refractory multiple myeloma (RRMM), in patients with at least two previous line of therapy, two phase III trials demonstrated superior overall response rate (ORR) and progression free survival (PFS) using triplets daratumumab-bortezomib-dexamethasone (DVd) Vd (CASTOR) or daratumumab-lenalidomide-dexamethasone (DRd) Rd (POLLUX) in relapsed-refractory MM patients; so these combinations have been approved and introduced in clinical practice.

A Novel Anti-HER2 Bispecific Antibody With Potent Tumor Inhibitory Effects and .

Front Immunol 2020 17;11:600883. Epub 2021 Feb 17.

Department of Immunology, School of Public Health, Tehran University of Medical Sciences, Tehran, Iran.

Overexpression of HER2 has been reported in many types of cancer, making it a perfect candidate for targeted immunotherapy. The combination of two FDA approved monoclonal antibodies (mAbs), trastuzumab and pertuzumab, has more robust anti-tumor activity in patients with HER2-overexpressing breast cancer. We recently produced a new humanized anti-HER2 mAb, hersintuzumab, which recognizes a different epitope than trastuzumab and pertuzumab on HER2. Read More

Key Laboratory of Green Printing, Institute of Chemistry, Chinese Academy of Sciences, Beijing, 100190, P. R. China.

Light harvesting is crucial for thin-film solar cells. To substantially reduce optical loss in perovskite solar cells (PSCs), hierarchical light-trapping nano-architectures enable absorption enhancement to exceed the conventional upper limit and have great potential for achieving state-of-the art optoelectronic performances. However, it remains a great challenge to design and fabricate a superior hierarchical light-trapping nano-architecture, which exhibits extraordinary light-harvesting ability and simultaneously avoids deteriorating the electrical performance of PSCs.
