Disitamab vedotin

Disitamab vedotin is an investigational compound. Its safety and efficacy have not been established.

Overview + Rationale

  • Disitamab vedotin (DV) is an investigational antibody-drug conjugate that contains 3 components: a recombinant, humanized, high affinity IgG1 monoclonal antibody directed to human epidermal growth factor receptor (HER2), a microtubule-disrupting agent MMAE (monomethyl auristatin E), and a protease-cleavable mc-vc (maleimidocaproyl-valine citrulline) linker that covalently attaches MMAE to the antibody, which enables preferential release of MMAE within target cells 
  • DV binds to a distinct epitope on subdomain IV of the HER2 extracellular domain1,4 
  • HER2 is a receptor tyrosine kinase2 that is overexpressed or amplified in multiple cancers, including breast, bladder, gastroesophageal, colorectal, ovarian, and lung3 
  • DV is optimized for enhanced internalization and delivery of cytotoxic MMAE to target cells
