Preclinical Antitumor Efficacy of BAY 1129980-a Novel Auristatin-Based Anti-C4.4A (LYPD3) Antibody-Drug Conjugate for the Treatment of Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer.


PMID 28292941

Abstract

C4.4A (LYPD3) has been identified as a cancer- and metastasis-associated internalizing cell surface protein that is expressed in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), with particularly high prevalence in the squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) subtype. With the exception of skin keratinocytes and esophageal endothelial cells, C4.4A expression is scarce in normal tissues, presenting an opportunity to selectively treat cancers with a C4.4A-directed antibody-drug conjugate (ADC). We have generated BAY 1129980 (C4.4A-ADC), an ADC consisting of a fully human C4.4A-targeting mAb conjugated to a novel, highly potent derivative of the microtubule-disrupting cytotoxic drug auristatin via a noncleavable alkyl hydrazide linker.
