InvivoGen provides a family of anti-hCD70-derived monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) in multiple human isotypes. They feature

  • the variable region of vorsetuzumab targeting the human (h)CD70 and
  • constant region that mediates different effector functions depending on the isotype.

The effector functions of the human isotypes in this family include antibody‑dependent cell-mediated cytotoxicity (ADCC) and complement-dependent cytotoxicity (CDC). You may choose between:

— IgG1 for high effector functions ('wild-type' hIgG1 constant region),

— IgG1fut for even higher effector functions (engineered non-fucosylated (fut) constant region), or

— IgG1NQ for no effector functions (engineered N-glycosylation mutated constant region).

InvivoGen's mAbs have been generated by recombinant DNA technology, produced in Chinese hamster ovary (CHO) cells, and purified by affinity chromatography.

 

Anti-hCD70-hIgG1 is the biosimilar of the clinical antibody vorsetuzumab. Vorsetuzumab is a humanized IgG1 mAb targeting the immune checkpoint (IC) molecule CD70 (aka CD27 ligand or CD27L). This mAb can kill tumor cells through antibody-dependent cell-mediated responses (ADCC & ADCP). In addition, vorsetuzumab can also be conjugated with small molecular antitumor drugs to form a new type of targeted therapeutic molecule called antibody-drug conjugates (ADCs) with accurate targeting and greater lethality [1].  Currently, a non-fucosylated version of this mAb (SEA-CD70) is undergoing clinical evaluation in a phase I study in patients with myeloid malignancies (NCT04227847) [2]. In the appropriate context of T cell receptor engagement, the interaction of CD27 with its ligand CD70 (also known as CD27L) promotes T cell activation, maturation of effector capacity, and T cell memory [3-4].

Comparison of ADCC potency for native and engineered anti-human CD70 antibody isotypes. Raji-Null cells were incubated with gradient concentrations of Anti-hCD70 or Anti-β-galactosidase (β-gal) mAbs for 1 hour. Jurkat-Lucia™ NFAT-CD16 effector cells were then co-incubated with target cells for 6 hours. NFAT activation, reflecting the induced ADCC response, was assessed by determining Lucia luciferase activity in the supernatant using QUANTI-Luc™. Percentages of the maximal response normalized to the IgG1 isotype are shown.

Details

The Cluster of Differentiation CD70 (aka CD27L, TNFSF7), a member of the TNFR family, is known as the sole ligand for CD27. The CD27–CD70 costimulatory receptor-ligand pair plays an important role in immune regulation. In concert with the T cell receptor (TCR) crosslinking, it promotes T cell activation, proliferation, survival, maturation of effector capacity, and T cell memory [1-2]. CD70 is primarily expressed on antigen-presenting cells (APCs) and upon interaction,with T cell-expressed CD27, it initiates the necessary signaling required for the proliferation and differentiation of antigen-specific T cells. Interestingly, it has been established that CD70 itself is transiently expressed on T cells after their activation. Evidence shows that T cell-expressed CD70 plays an important immune checkpoint role in the suppression of inflammatory T cell responses by a number of mechanisms including the upregulation of inhibitory immune checkpoint molecules [3]. Thus, the expression of CD70 on T cells has the ability to ameliorate inflammation and therefore, may be beneficial in the treatment of inflammatory diseases, such as inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and graft-versus-host disease (GVHD) [3].

Constitutive overexpression of CD70 has been described in a range of solid and hematological malignancies, whereby tumor cells have hijacked the CD27-CD70 signaling pathway to facilitate immune evasion in the tumor microenvironment (TME) [4]. They do this by increasing the amount of suppressive regulatory T cells (Tregs), inducing caspase-dependent apoptosis of T cells, and skewing T cells towards exhaustion, to ensure they circumvent the immune response [1]. Additionally, the presence of CD70 on cancer stem cells has been shown to be a predictive marker for metastasis and poor prognosis [5]. Exploiting CD70-targeting in cancer patients has the potential to specifically eliminate the CD70-expressing cancer cell populations and abrogate the tumor-promoting mechanisms by the CD70-CD27 signaling axis, both in the early stage and advanced disease. Combinatorial approaches with anti-CD70 targeting therapies have proven their potential in both preclinical and clinical settings, using antibody-mediated therapy, chemotherapy, and Chimeric Antigen Receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy [6]. 

In conclusion, CD70 targeting agents like CD70-directed mAbs bear the potential of effectively targeting CD70-expressing solid and hematological tumors. Further clinical trials are needed to investigate potential combinations of immune-modulating therapies, especially at earlier stages of disease, to achieve the best possible outcome for cancer patients [7].
