Ex vivo efficacy of C1s antibody as Complement inhibitor in cold agglutinin disease
Date:4/14/2014

SOUTH SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.--True North Therapeutics, Inc., announced today a publication demonstrating that the company's C1s antibody prevents the destruction of human red blood cells exposed to plasma samples of patients with a type of autoimmune hemolytic anemia (AIHA). The article entitled "TNT003, an inhibitor of the serine protease C1s, prevents complement activation induced by cold agglutinin disease patient autoantibodies" was published on-line in the journal Blood earlier this month. TNT003 is the murine analog of True North's lead humanized monoclonal antibody drug candidate, TNT009, for which the company plans to initiate the first clinical program in 2015.

In ex vivo studies using plasma samples from patients with a type of AIHA known as cold agglutinin disease (CAD), True North demonstrated that red blood cells exposed to patient samples contained high levels of Complement proteins deposited on the cell surface. True North showed that by inhibiting Complement deposition on the red blood cell membrane, TNT003 prevented the red blood cells from being engulfed by macrophages, immune cells responsible for clearing Complement-coated cells and debris from the blood. TNT003 also prevented direct red blood cell lysis driven by a CAD sample that contained unusually high levels of autoantibodies, suggesting that a Complement inhibitor like TNT003 could be efficacious in severe cases of CAD.

"By selectively shutting down the Classical Complement pathway with an antibody, the main drivers of anemia in CAD have been reduced in this preclinical study. Using TNT003 and a large number of 40 patient samples, we were able to deepen the field's understanding of the Complement system's role in this rare disease. The study strengthens the hypothesis that such an approach could be beneficial in this rare patient population," stated Sandip Panicker, PhD, C1s Program Lead and senior author on the journal article in Blood.
