Q-1802 is a humanized bispecific antibody targets both the tumor -specific antigen CLDN18.2 and the immune checkpoint PD-L1 Q-1802 has excellent safety, tolerability Q-1802 has excellent anti-tumor activity in CLDN18.2 positive GI patients
Q-1802, a humanized bispecific antibody, is the first FDA-approved and the first enter clinical trial Claudin18.2/PD-L1 bispecific antibody，as well as the first to present clinical data at ASCO annual meeting. It recruits multiple immune mechanisms to kill tumor cells, offering a novel therapeutic opportunity for Claudin18.2 positive solid tumors. Q-1802 exhibits high affinity and selectivity, and patients with low or high expression of CLDN18.2 can benefit from it. The current clinical phase I data verify both superior anti-tumor activities and excellent safety profiles. The molecular design of Q-1802 is rational and effective, the production process is robust with high yield.
