Nivolumab (Opdivo®️) and Anti-PD-1 Molecules
Checkpoint inhibitors have gained more traction as an essential mechanism in the treatment of cancer. Programmed cell death protein 1 (PD-1) is an immune checkpoint found on cells involved in regulating the immune system's response to self-cells by down-regulating the immune response and promoting self-tolerance by suppressing T cell inflammatory activity. Therefore, PD-1 has a vital role in preventing autoimmune diseases but can also prevent the immune system from killing cancer cells.
Nivolumab, a fully human IgG4 molecule and other anti-PD-1 molecules, has revolutionized cancer treatment by acting as checkpoint inhibitors, blocking the interaction between PD-1 and its ligand (PD-L1 and PD-L2), which would typically lead to the inhibition of T cell activation. Biosimilars have the potential to provide more affordable healthcare and expand patient access to biologics.
Sartorius offers a complete characterization package for innovator and biosimilar nivolumab, increasing speed to market while reducing biosimilar manufacturers' in-house development costs. Sartorius can build a package to suit your characterization needs from structure to binding to function.
