Bi-specific humanized antibody against Endosialin and Gal-3BP

Endosialin (aka TEM1 and CD248) is a protein expressed by pericytes of tumor blood vessels and directly on a subset of malignant cells. Blocking Endosialin with antibodies has been shown to inhibit tumor growth and metastasis.

Gall-3BP (aka LGALS3BP or 90K) is a a protein secreted at large amounts by the vast majority of tumor cells, which plays an important role in cell-cell and cell-extracellular matrix adhesion and as a pro-angiogenic factor.

Use of a bi-specific antibody against Endosialin and LGALS3BP may result in a greater anti-angiogenic and anti-tumor effect than either antibody alone.
