Description

Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are extensively developed for therapeutic use in various indications.

During non-clinical safety assessment, high doses of mAbs are administered to animals to study potential adverse drug reactions.

When dosing human mAbs to animals, immunogenicity, e.g. formation of anti-drug-antibodies (ADAs), is relatively common.

A direct consequence of ADA formation may be decreased exposure and/or neutralization of the pharmacological activity. However, ADAs may also cause hypersensitivity reactions through immune complex formation, which are more infrequent, but may lead to significant pathophysiologic changes or even death.

In this PhD Fellowship on Pharmacology project we wish to study the dynamics of immune complex formation and clearance after administration of mAbs to rats to examine if biomarkers can be used to predict development of immune complex-mediated vascular pathology in target tissues.
