Monomethyl auristatin E(MMAE) is a potent antimitotic agent by blocking the polymerisation of tubulin.

Microtubules play essential role in the function of the cell. Microtubules are also reported to be involved in migration, transport and reorganization and have numerous dynamic roles including movement through motor proteins such as dynein and kinesin and the separation and segregation ofchromosomes during cell division.

In vitro: The cytotoxic effects of the MMAE conjugates on H3396 cells were determined using both pulsed and long-term drug exposure assays. It was found that under both exposure conditions, high degrees of immunological specificity were obtained with the Val-Cit conjugates. cBR96-Val-Cit-MMAE was highly active at <1/100th of the concentration required for antigen saturation [1].

In vivo: In vivo therapy tests were undertaken in athymic mice with subcutaneous L2987 human lung adenocarcinoma xenografts. MMAE conjugates were administered at 3 mg mAb component/kg/dose. All of the tested MMAE conjugates were highly efficacious, leading to long-term regressions of established tumors, whereas the nonbinding control conjugates had no effect on tumor growth. In addition, there were no apparent toxicities associated with conjugate treatment [1].

Clinical trial: In a ongoing Phase I study with platinum-resistant ovarian cancer patients, nonlinear PK of MMAE conjugate had been observed in the dose range of 0.3 to 3.2 mg/kg. Circulating CA125 results suggested no impact on the PK at 2.4 mg/kg, which was the potential clinically relevant dose. Systemic free MMAE concentration was low and consistent with other MMAE containing ADCs [2].
