Reslizumab (Sch 55700) is humanized monoclonal antibodies that target interleukin-5 (IL-5) for the treatment of eosinophilic asthma. Reslizumab is effective in neutralizing the function of IL-5. Reslizumab inhibits IL-5-dependent cell proliferation, with an IC50 value of approximately 91.1pM. Reslizumab has high binding affinity for human IL-5, with KD values of 109 pM and 4.3 pM in the the Biacore surface plasmon resonance and Kinetic Exclusion Assay, respectively.
Complement-dependent cytotoxicity(CDC), complement-dependent cellular cytotoxicity(CDCC), antibody-dependent cytotoxicity (ADCC) as well as the induction of apoptosis have been claimed to be responsible for the efficacy of rituximab. Rituximab can induce death of malignant B cell lines in vitro. The strength of this effect varies considerably between target cell lines. Changes that have been identified in response to rituximab in vitro include inhibition of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase, NF-κB, extracellular signal-regulated kinase 1/2 (ERK 1/2) and AKT antiapoptotic survival pathways. Rituximab is highly efficient at mediating CMC(complement dependent cytotoxicity) of various B cell lines as well as fresh malignant B cell samples. CD20-binding capacity of rituximab is dose-dependent.
