Tislelizumab (BGB-A317) is a humanized IgG4 anti–PD-1 monoclonal antibody specifically designed to minimize binding to FcγR on macrophages to abrogate antibody-dependent phagocytosis, a mechanism of T-cell clearance and potential resistance to anti-PD-1 therapy.1,2

Immune surveillance is a mechanism by which the immune system identifies cancer cells and eliminates them via cytotoxic T-cells (CTLs). Tumors have developed strategies to escape immune surveillance including an altered expression of various immune checkpoints leading to the suppression of CTL function.H In normal tissues the PD-1/PD-L1 axis acts as a ‘brake’ in immune function preventing sustained T-cell activity and tissue damage.@ T-cells are activated via binding of the TCR to the MHC/antigen complex on an APC or tumor cell.! Upon T-cell activation, PD-1 expression is induced.P A tumor cell can upregulate PD-L1 expression to mimic normal cells and “turn off” T-cells to escape immune surveillance.pjm

Blocking the PD-1/PD-L1 signaling pathway by an anti-PD-1 antibody allows T-cells to maintain their effector functions.A The Fc portion of the anti-PD-1 antibody and its limited interaction with FcγR are important for its therapeutic activities.O Activated tumor-specific T-cells mediate the destruction of tumor cells and secrete cytokines that activate and recruit other immune cells to participate in the antitumor response.Anti-PD-1 antibodies, which bind to FcγRs, likely mediate the crosslinking between PD-1+ T cells and FcγR+ macrophages. Such crosslinking could potentially induce macrophages to phagocytize PD-1+ T cells and possibly diminish antitumor responses.O

Tislelizumab is a humanized IgG4 mAb with high affinity and binding specificity against PD-1.Tislelizumab was specifically engineered to minimize binding to FcγR on macrophages.O Minimal binding of anti-PD-1 antibodies to FcγR abrogates antibody-dependent cellular phagocytosis, a potential mechanism of T-cell clearance.lNrll Binding surface of tislelizumab on PD-1 overlapped largely with that of PD-L1, leading to the complete blockade of PD-1/PD-L1 interaction (>99%).z@
