Pharmacodynamics

IGN311 is a fully humanized IgG1 variant 1 of the parent murine IgG3 mab ABL 364. It is an antibody against the Lewis-Y carbohydrate antigen and Igeneon's next-generation antibody, IGN312.

Mechanism of action

IGN311 is a humanized monoclonal antibody against the Lewis Y carbohydrate antigen, a blood-group-related oligosaccharide. Lewis Y is over-expressed in up to 90% of all epithelial cancers and its expression on adult normal tissues is very restricted; hence IGN311 has the potential to target a broad range of carcinomas. IGN311 is designed to exert clinical effects by destruction of tumor cells by activation of effector functions and by selective growth inhibition via functional receptors.
