Human Anti-Nivolumab Antibody, clone AbD30255 is a paratope specific, inhibitory anti-idiotypic antibody that specifically recognizes the monoclonal antibody drug nivolumab. The antibody does not recognize recombinant human programmed cell death 1 (PD-1) or nivolumab in complex with recombinant human PD-1 and can be used to measure free nivolumab levels in serum from patients.

A pair of anti-nivolumab antibodies can be used to develop a pharmacokinetic (PK) bridging assay to measure free drug. This antibody, in monovalent Fab format, is recommended as the capture antibody, paired with an HRP conjugated Anti-Nivolumab Antibody in full immunoglobulin format, clone AbD30258_hIgG1 (HCA301) as the detection antibody.

Nivolumab (Opdivo) is a fully human antibody (IgG4/kappa), with the heavy chain mutation S228P (IgG4-Pro). It is used as a first line treatment for inoperable or metastatic melanoma in combination with ipilimumab if the cancer does not have a mutation in BRAF. It is also approved for treatment of advanced non-small cell lung cancer, advanced renal cell carcinoma, classical Hodgkin's lymphoma and advanced head and neck squamous cell carcinoma. Nivolumab is a checkpoint inhibitor and acts as an immuno-modulator by blocking ligand activation of PD-1 receptor on T cells, thereby activating T cells to attack the cancer. Nivolumab blocks PD-1 interaction with PD-1 ligand (PD-L1) and PD-1 ligand 2 (PD-L2).
