MSB0254 is a high affinity humanized anti-VEGFR-2 mAb, with an anti-tumor mechanism of action by inhibiting tumor angiogenesis. MSB0254 has been generated using Transcenta’s in-house antibody discovery platform. VEGFR-2 is overexpressed in neovascular tumor endothelial cells in many tumors in comparison to normal endothelial cells. Vascular permeability, survival and migration of the vascular endothelial cells are controlled by the VEGFR-2 pathway. VEGFR-2 inhibitors has been shown to be able to inhibit tumor-induced angiogenesis and effectively block tumor growth, and thus may have a potential therapeutic role in multiple tumor types.
