BGB-A317 is an investigational humanized monoclonal antibody that belongs to a class of immuno-oncology agents known as immune checkpoint inhibitors. It is designed to bind to PD-1, a cell surface receptor that plays an important role in downregulating the immune system by preventing the activation of T-cells. BGB-A317 has high affinity and specificity for PD-1. It is differentiated from the currently approved PD-1 antibodies in an engineered Fc region, which is believed to minimize potentially negative interactions with other immune cells. BGB-A317 is being developed as a monotherapy and in combination with other therapies for the treatment of a broad array of both solid tumor and hematologic cancers.
BGB-290 is a potent and highly selective inhibitor of PARP1 and PARP2 with pharmacological properties such as brain penetration and PARP–DNA complex trapping demonstrated in preclinical models. BGB-290 is currently in global clinical development as a monotherapy and in combination with other agents for a variety of solid tumor malignancies.
