Summary for Patent: 7,304,033
Title:Methods for protecting allogeneic islet transplant using soluble CTLA4 mutant molecules
Abstract: The present invention is a method of inhibiting islet cell transplant rejection, particularly to treat diabetes, such as type-1 and type-2 diabetes, by administering to a subject an effective amount of a soluble CTLA4 mutant molecule. One example of a soluble CTLA4 mutant molecule is L104EA29YIg.

Assignee: Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (Princeton, NJ)
Application Number:10/155,514
Patent Claims:1. A method for inhibiting islet cell transplant rejection in a subject, comprising administering to the subject an effective amount of a CTLA4 molecule comprising a mutated extracellular domain comprising an amino acid sequence beginning with alanine at position 26 and ending with aspartic acid at position 150 as shown in SEQ ID NO:6, or beginning with methionine at position 27 and ending with aspartic acid at position 150 as shown in SEQ ID NO:6.

2. A method for treating diabetes by inhibiting islet cell transplant rejection in a subject by the method of claim 1.

3. The method of claim 1, wherein the islet cells are encapsulated prior to administration to the subject.

4. The method of claim 1, further comprising administering to the subject an effective amount of at least one of an immunosuppressive agent, an immunomodulatory compound, and an anti-inflammatory agent, wherein the CTLA4 molecule and at least one of an immunosuppressive agent, an immunomodulatory compound and an anti-inflammatory agent are to be administered concomitantly or in sequence.

5. The method of claim 4, wherein the immunosuppressive agent is (i) rapamycin (sirolimus) or its derivative 40-O-(2-hydroxy)ethyl-rapamycin, (ii) anti-human IL-2R mAb, or (iii) a combination of (i) and (ii).

6. The method of claim 4, wherein the immunosuppressive agent is a cyclosporin, tacrolimus, prednisone, azathioprine, methotrexate, infliximab, hydroxychloroquine, sulphasalazopryine, etanercept, anakinra, basiliximab, chloroquine, cyclophosphamide, cytoxan, 15-deoxyspergualine, D-penicillamine, glatiramer acetate, FTY720, horse anti-human thymocyte globulin (ATGAM), humanized anti-TAC (HAT), interferon beta-1a, interferon beta-1b, leflunomide, lymphocyte immune globulin, methoxsalen, mitoxantrone hydrochloride, mycophenolic acid, mycophenolate mofetil, mizoribine, rabbit anti-human thymocyte globulin, Rho (D) immune globulin, sirolimus (rapamycin), sulfasalzine, thalidomide, soluble gp39, soluble CD29, soluble CD40, soluble CD80, soluble CD86, soluble CD28, soluble CD56, soluble Thy-1, soluble CD3, soluble TCR, soluble VLA-4, soluble VCAM-1, soluble LECAM-1, soluble ELAM-1, soluble CD44, antibodies to gp39, antibodies to CD40, antibodies to B7-1 or B7-2, antibodies to CD28, antibodies to LFA-1, antibodies to LFA-2, antibodies to IL-2, antibodies to IL 12, antibodies to IFN-gamma, antibodies to CD2, antibodies to CD48, antibodies to any ICAM, antibodies to CTLA4, antibodies to Thy-1, antibodies to CD56, antibodies to CD3, antibodies to CD29, antibodies to TCR, antibodies to VLA-4, antibodies to VCAM-1, antibodies to LECAM-1, antibodies to ELAM-1, antibodies to CD44, monoclonal antibodies to OX40, or 4-1BB CTLA4/CD28-1g, anti-human IL-2R mAbs, 40-0(2hydroxy)ethyl-rapamycin, soluble CD80 deposited as ATCC 68627, an antibody to any of ICAM-1, ICAM-2 and ICAM-3, or a monoclonal antibody to any of MHC, CD2, CD3, CD4, CD11a/CD18, CD7, CD25, CD27, B7, CD40, CD45, CD58, CD137, ICOS, or CD150 (SLAM).

7. The method of claim 4, wherein administration is by intravenous injection, intramuscular injection, subcutaneous injection, implantable pump, continuous infusion, gene therapy, liposomes or oral administration.

8. The method of claim 1, wherein the subject is a human, non-human primate, rabbit, sheep, rat, dog, cat, pig, or mouse.

9. The method of claim 1 further comprising administering T cell depleted bone marrow cells to the subject.

10. The method of claim 1, wherein the subject is being transplanted with islet cells before, or after, administration of the CTLA4 molecule.

11. The method of claim 2, wherein diabetes is type 1 diabetes or type 2 diabetes.

12. The method of claim 1, wherein the mutated extracellular domain is fused to a non-CTLA4 moiety.

13. The method of claim 12, wherein the non-CTLA4 moiety comprises an immunoglobulin moiety.

14. The method of claim 13, wherein the immunoglobulin moiety is an immunoglobulin constant region or portion thereof.

15. The method of claim 14, wherein the immunoglobulin constant region or portion thereof comprises one or more mutations to reduce effector function.

16. The method of claims 14 or 15, wherein the immunoglobulin constant region comprises the hinge, CH2 and CH3 regions of an immunoglobulin molecule.

17. The method of claim 14, wherein the immunoglobulin constant region or portion thereof is a human or monkey immunoglobulin constant region.

18. A method for inhibiting islet cell transplant rejection in a subject, comprising administering to the subject an effective amount of a soluble CTLA4 mutant molecule, wherein the soluble CTLA4 mutant molecule comprises an amino acid sequence as shown in SEQ ID NO:6 beginning with alanine at position 26 and ending with lysine at position 383, or beginning with methionine at position 27 and ending with lysine at position 383.
