Non-Fucosylated CD70-directed Antibody

PF-08046040, SGN-CD70 is an investigational compound. Its safety and efficacy have not been established.

Overview + Rationale

  • PF-08046040; SGN-CD70 is an investigational, humanized, nonfucosylated immunoglobulin G1 monoclonal antibody directed to CD70
  • CD70 is a cell-surface ligand of the tumor necrosis factor superfamily, transiently expressed on activated B and T cells and mature dendritic cells2-4 whose receptor, CD27, is widely expressed on B, T, and natural killer cells3,4 
  • CD70 and CD27 are expressed on AML and MDS malignant blasts as well as on leukemic blasts that propagate the disease.1,5-8 
  • CD70 has limited expression in normal cells, making it an attractive target in myeloid malignancies2-6 
  • The nonfucosylated Fc region of PF-08046040; SGN-CD70 has increased affinity for activating FcγRIIIa receptors and minimal affinity for inhibitory FcγRIIb receptors, leading to enhanced Fc-mediated effector function1

Mechanism of Action

PF-08046040; SGN-CD70 is thought to engage an antitumor immune response through: 

  • Blockade of CD70/CD27-mediated proliferative signaling in malignant blast cells 2 
  • Antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis2 
  • Enhanced antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity2 
  • Complement-dependent cytotoxicity2
