Pre-Made Asunercept Biosimilar, Fusion Protein targeting FASLG/CD178 fused with human IGHG1 Fc (Fragment constant): Recombinant therapeutic protein targeting ALPS1B/APT1LG1/APTL/CD95-L/CD95L/FASL/TNFSF6/TNLG1A is a biosimilar expressed by mammalian cell line as a benchmark reference therapeutic antibody for biological drug disovery items including cell culture, assay development, animal model development, PK/PD model development (Pharmacokinetics & Pharmacodynamic) and mechanism of action (MOA) research.
Asunercept (INN; development code APG11) is a soluble CD95-Fc fusion protein which is in clinical development for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Asunercept has been granted orphan drug status for the treatment of GBM and MDS in the EU and the US. It has also received PRIME designation by the European Medicines Agency (EMA) for the treatment of GBM.
Asunercept is a soluble CD95-Fc fusion protein for the treatment of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) and myelodysplastic syndromes (MDS). Asunercept blocks the CD95¨Cligand (CD95L) from binding to the CD95-receptor (CD95), which induces apoptosis. In oncology, this blockade is intended to prevent the killing of activated T cells that can be induced by tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs), endothelial cells, or fibroblasts. In MDS, CD95L-signaling is a negative regulator of erythrocyte production in the bone marrow and its blockade has been shown to rescue erythroid progenitors.
