ImmuNext: New VISTAs
Monday, November 5, 2012
Inc. has developed an antagonist of VISTA, a ligand that negatively
regulates T cells similar to better known members of the B7 family of proteins.
But targeting VISTA could be safer than targeting other B7 proteins because it
may not lead to the severe immune responses seen with more widely expressed
members of the family.
Last month, ImmuNext granted Johnson
& Johnson exclusive, worldwide rights to develop and commercialize
products that antagonize VISTA - V-region immunoglobulin-containing suppressor
of T cell activation - a newly identified negative checkpoint regulator that is
a part of the B7 family. J&J plans to develop immunotherapies targeting
VISTA to treat cancer.
