Background

CCR5 mAb is a fully human monoclonal antibody that specifically recognizes and binds the chemokine receptor CCR5, which is known to be a key facilitator of infection with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV-1). It was generated by HGS using the Abgenix XenoMouse technology.

Mechanism of action

The chemokine receptor CCR5 provides a portal of entry for HIV-1 and serves a target for potential new antiretroviral therapies. CCR5 monoclonal antibodies (mAb) and small-molecule CCR5 antagonists potently block HIV-1 entry in vitro, and controlled clinical trials have provided initial proof-of-concept for this mode of therapy.
