Integrin b1 (CD29)
In vitro and mouse studies suggest CD29 inhibitors could
help treat Avastin
glioblastoma multiforme (GBM). In cultures of Avastin-treated or
Avastin-resistant primary GBM cells, CD29 expression was greater than that in
untreated or bevacizumab-sensitive cells. In mice with Avastin-resistant
orthotopic xenograft GBM tumors, an anti-CD29 antibody (OS2966)
decreased tumor growth compared with an inactive control IgG. In mice with
Avastin-sensitive xenograft GBM tumors, OS2966 plus low-dose Avastin
decreased tumor growth compared with low-dose Avastin plus control IgG.
Ongoing work by OncoSynergy
Inc. includes testing OS2966 in models of recurrent GBM and
and its Genentech
Inc. and Chugai Pharmaceutical
Co. Ltd. units market Avastin, a humanized mAb against VEGF,
to treat brain, breast and colorectal cancers.
