CTATTM is an innovative enzymatic linker technology for conjugating different payloads with antibodies, without affecting their specificity, binding properties or stability. In the presented xenograft trial, the tested CTAT-ADC showed superior efficacy versus a commercially available ADC.
An anti-Her2 antibody conjugated to the maytansinoid DM1 using the novel CTATTM-linker technology (“CTAT-ADC”) was tested in nude mice with SKOV-3 cancer cell xenografts for maximum tolerated dose (“MTD”) and efficacy. Three different dosages of the CTAT-ADC were compared to a commercially available Trastuzumab-DM1-ADC (“T-DM1-ADC”, Kadcyla), to naked antibody and to the delivery vehicle. In the MTD part the CTAT-ADC was well tolerated by the animals in a dosage of up to 70 mg/kg body weight. No animals were lost, and only in the highest dosage group a slight and temporary loss of body weight was observed.
