Natalizumab antibody | AbD21384_hIgG1
Human anti Natalizumab
- Product Type
- Monoclonal Antibody
|Human Anti-Natalizumab Antibody, clone AbD21384_hlgG1 is a paratope specific, anti-idiotypic antibody that specifically recognizes free natalizumab but not free human alpha-4/beta-1 integrin or the drug/integrin complex. It inhibits the binding of natalizumab to its target and can be used to measure levels of free natalizumab and biosimilar products in bioanalytical and patient monitoring assays.
Clone AbD21384_hIgG1 is a fully human recombinant monoclonal antibody with IgG1 isotype and is suitable as a surrogate positive control or calibrator of medium affinity in an anti-drug antibody (ADA) assay.
Natalizumab (Tysabri) is a humanized IgG4/kappa monoclonal antibody approved as a monotherapy for the treatment of relapsing forms of multiple sclerosis and for the treatment of Crohn’s disease. It is directed against alpha-4 integrin (CD49d), and binds to alpha-4/beta-1 integrin on the surface of circulating leucocytes, except neutrophils. It is believed to act by blocking the interaction of alpha-4/beta-1 integrin with vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 (VCAM-1), preventing the adherence and transport of inflammatory immune cells across the intestinal lining and blood-brain barrier.
