Immunotherapy Against Erbb-3 Receptor

Numero deposito: WO2012059224



The present invention describes methods and pharmaceutical compositions for the treatment of cancer in mammals, more particularly in human subjects. More specifically, the invention concerns anti-tumor vaccines based upon plasmid DNA and/or genetic vectors carrying a codon-usage optimized sequence and coding for a mutant form of the ErbB-3 receptor. Furthermore, the invention refers to monoclonal antibodies directed against the ErbB-3 receptor, obtained using these methods and capable to block its activity in cancer cells.

FcϒR-CARs (Chimeric Antigen Receptors) code for transmembrane chimeric molecules with dual functions:

a) Binding to the Fc fragment of IgG via the extracellular portion of the FcγR fragment of CD16 (CD16-CR); FcγRIRI CD64 (CD32-CR FcϒRIIb CD32 (CD32-CR)

b) Activation of the lithic machinery in the immune effector cells, via the CD28 and ζ-chain domains embedded in the CAR. FcϒR-CARs are "Universal CARs" designed to redirect T cells functions against opsonized target cells recruiting T-dependent ADCC-like responses, while maintaining the clinically relevant effects of the therapeutic antibodies available for tumors treatment. Advantages: Combining T cell redirection with mAbs, FcϒR-CARs offer the possibility to quickly shift target antigen at the appearance of a new neoplastic phenotype; FcϒR-CAR T cell therapies can be widely optimized by the administration of mAbs targeting different antigens, simultaneously or in different moments of the therapy.
