Abstract


PRO1160 is an antibody-drug conjugate directed toward CD70, an antigen that is aberrantly overexpressed in multiple hematologic malignancies and carcinomas with limited normal tissue expression. PRO1160 is comprised of a 1) human monoclonal antibody that selectively binds to CD70, 2) a cleavable, hydrophilic linker, and 3) exatecan, a topoisomerase 1 inhibitor. Upon binding to CD70 on the surface of malignant cells, PRO1160 is internalized and exatecan released through enzymatic cleavage of the linker. Exatecan blocks the ligation step of the cell cycle and generates DNA single- and double-strand breaks, which leads to cell death. PRO1160 demonstrated robust anti-tumor activity, in vitro and in vivo. In multiple cell-derived xenograft mouse models, PRO1160 demonstrated more potent tumor growth inhibition compared to an MMAE-conjugated ADC with the same parent antibody. PRO1160 was well tolerated in mice with no to minimal impact on body weight gain. The in vivo pharmacokinetics in rats showed that PRO1160 is stable in circulation. These nonclinical data suggest the potential for a broad therapeutic window and further development of PRO1160 is warranted. PRO1160 has the potential for an expanded therapeutic index. PRO1160 is being developed for the potential treatment of patients with CD70-expressing hematologic and solid tumor cancers.
