Poster Information
Abstract: Immunotherapy aims to boost a patient’s own immune system to fight disease. Activation of T cells via direct stimulation of the T cell receptor or by modulating immune checkpoint pathways are two strategies being employed individually and in combination. Immune checkpoint targets include co-inhibitory (e.g. PD-1, CTLA-4, TIGIT, LAG-3) and co-stimulatory (e.g. GITR, 4-1BB, OX40, CD40) receptors. Summary: Cell-based reporter bioassays overcome the limitations of primary cell-based assays for functional characterization of antibody and other biologics drugs targeting individual or combination immune checkpoint receptors. Here we show a portfolio of immune checkpoint bioassays that can be used for antibody screening, characterization, potency and stability studies. Report abuse »
