Medicilon Assists | China's First CD19×CD3×CD28 Trispecific Antibody Obtained FDA Implicit Approval

Page View:
Recently, CytoCares (Shanghai) Inc. (CytoCares) obtained the FDA's implied approval for the IND application of its first CD19/CD3/CD28-targeting trispecific antibody CC312.  This is the first trispecific antibody in China and the third in the world to enter the clinical development stage based on the CD28 costimulatory signal.
Shanghai Medicilon Inc. (Medicilon) provided CC312 with a comprehensive preclinical study (including pharmacokinetics and safety evaluation) that complied with GLP specifications with compliant, efficient and high-quality services.

CD19×CD3×CD28 Trispecific Antibody
Exploring New Possibilities in Tumor Immunotherapy

CytoCares focuses on the design and development of innovative multi-specific antibodies, and has its own tertiary antibody platform - TriTETM (Tri-specific T-cell Engager).  The platform is based on the "dual signal" activation mechanism of T cells, and uses the costimulatory signal as the "amplifier" of the first stimulation signal to achieve continuous and sufficient activation of T cells.
CC312 was the product of the CytoCares's TriTETM platform.  According to its related patent WO2018120843A1, CC312 is composed of three scFvs targeting CD19, CD3 and CD28 in tandem.  While targeting CD19, CC312 also contains two functional fragments on the same antibody molecule that can simultaneously activate CD3 and CD28 on T cells, which can effectively activate T cells, induce memory T cell proliferation, and prevent T cell anergy.  Compared with the double antibody with only CD3 activation signal, it can more effectively maintain the persistence of T cell activation.  CC312 showed significant pharmacodynamic effects and good safety in preclinical studies on hematological tumors.
