Ibalizumab
Accession Number
DB12698
Description

Ibalizumab (also known as ibalizumab-uiyk and formerly known as TNX-355) is a monoclonal antibody that binds to CD4 receptors on the surface of CD4-positive cells, preventing HIV particle entry into the lymphocytes. It is an advanced and current antibody in development for the treatment of HIV/AIDS. It has been developed by Taimed biologics and Theratechnologies 8,5.

This drug was approved in March 2018 for the management of treatment-resistant HIV 5.

Indication

Indicated for the treatment of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) infection in highly treatment-experienced adults with multidrug-resistant HIV-1 infection failing their current antiretroviral regimen Label.

The approval of Trogarzo was supported by a clinical trial of 40 treatment-experienced adults with MDR HIV-1 infection who persistently had elevated levels of HIV RNA in their blood despite heavy antiretroviral therapy. The majority of study patients had previously been treated with ≥10 antiretroviral medications 5.

Pharmacodynamics

Trogarzo safety and effectiveness have been confirmed in a clinical trial of 40 patients who suffer multidrug-resistant HIV. The majority of these patients experienced a substantial decrease in their HIV-RNA levels within 7 days after receiving the drug. Approximately 43 percent of patients continued to experience HIV-RNA inhibition after 24 weeks of taking Trogarzo 5.

Trogarzo inhibits viral entry into cells, effectively managing HIV-1 infection in those who have attempted other therapies to no avail 5.

Mechanism of action

Ibalizumab is a monoclonal antibody and viral-entry inhibitor that coats CD4-positive cells, the main target of HIV infection. By blocking viral entry into CD4 cells, ibalizumab creates a barrier for HIV, which is a different mechanism from those of entry inhibitors that target viral proteins or chemokine co-receptors.

Ibalizumab is a CD4 domain 2-directed post-attachment HIV-1 inhibitor. This binding specificity of ibalizumab-uiyk to domain 2 of CD4 allows ibalizumab-uiyk to prevent viral entry into host cells without causing immunosuppression. Epitope mapping studies confirm that ibalizumab-uiyk binds to a conformational epitope located mainly in domain 2 of the extracellular region of the CD4 receptor. This epitope is located on the surface of CD4 opposite to the site in domain 1 that is essential for CD4 binding of the MHC class II molecules. This drug, therefore, does not interfere with CD4 cell-mediated immune functions. In addition, ibalizumab-uiyk does not interfere with gp120 attachment to CD4 Label. Ibalizumab’s post-binding conformational effects block the gp120-CD4 complex from interacting with CCR5 or CXCR4 and thus prevents viral entry and fusion 6.

CD4 is an integral cell surface glycoprotein that is able to enhance T cell-specific antigen responses when it interacts with its physiological ligand, class II major histocompatibility (MHC) molecules. In addition, CD4 is a specific cell-surface receptor for the human immunodeficiency virus-1 (HIV-1).

The entry of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) into cells requires the sequential binding of the viral exterior envelope glycoprotein, gp120, with the CD4 glycoprotein and a chemokine receptor on the cell surface. In addition, the CD4/gp120 interaction may directly inhibit T cell function 3.

In addition to the above mechanism of action, it was found in one study that ibalizumab-uiyk inhibits the replication of CCR5- and CXCR4- receptor laboratory strains and primary isolates of HIV-1 in phytohemagglutinin-stimulated peripheral blood lymphocytes, further confirming its action 9.

Half-life

The half-life of ibalizumab is 3 to 3.5 days on average. The half-life was estimated from a multiple-dose study evaluating weekly ibalizumab 10 mg/kg in 1 study arm and biweekly ibalizumab 25 mg/kg in another study arm, given via intravenous (IV) infusion in adults with HIV 6. In one clinical trial, the elimination half-life increased from 2.7 to 64 hours as the dose increased from 0.3 to 25 mg/kg (0.01 to 0.9 times the approved recommended loading dose based on a 70 kg patient) Label.

Clearance

Following single-dose administrations of ibalizumab-uiyk as 0.5 to 1.5-hour infusions, the area under the concentration-time curve increased in a greater than dose-proportional manner, clearance decreased from 9.54 to 0.36 mL/h/kg and elimination half-life increased from 2.7 to 64 hours as the dose increased from 0.3 to 25 mg/kg Label.

Toxicity

Immune reconstitution inflammatory syndrome has been reported in one patient treated with TROGARZO in combination with other antiretrovirals. During the initial phase of combination antiretroviral therapies, patients whose immune systems respond may develop an inflammatory response to indolent or residual opportunistic infections, which may necessitate further evaluation and treatment Label.
