Ociperlimab (BGB-A1217) is an investigational humanized monoclonal antibody designed to bind to TIGIT with high specificity and affinity. Ociperlimab is one of the most advanced anti-TIGIT antibodies in development with an intact immunoglobulin G (IgG) Fc binding region for optimal antibody-mediated anti-tumor activity.1,2

T-cell immunoglobulin and immunoreceptor tyrosine-based inhibitory motif domain (TIGIT) is a co-inhibitory immune checkpoint receptor expressed on multiple immune cells, including regulatory T-cells (Tregs), activated and exhausted T-cells, and natural killer (NK) cells.3

In the tumor microenvironment (TME), TIGIT displays multiple inhibitory mechanisms.0 Highly expressed on Tregsi, TIGIT signaling enhances their immunosuppressive functions leading to T-cell exhaustion.|ss When expressed on T-cells and NK-cells, TIGIT binds to two ligands, CD155 (PVR, nectin-like protein-5) and CD112 (PVRL-2, nectin-2), expressed by tumor cells which leads to inhibitory signaling in T-cells and promotes functional exhaustion of tumor-infiltrating lymphocytes.AQ5Q[ The immune-activating co-stimulatory receptor CD226 (DNAM-1) is also expressed on T-cells and NK-cells. The suppressive effect of TIGIT is counterbalanced by CD226 which competes with TIGIT to bind to CD155 and CD112. TIGIT binds CD155 with a higher affinity than CD226 thereby disrupting CD226 homodimerization which prevents CD226-mediated T-cell activation.Wi_iU

Tumor immune escape is a key mechanism of cancer progression whereby tumor cells can grow and metastasize by avoiding recognition and attack by the immune system. In solid tumors, TIGIT is highly co-expressed with PD-1 on CD8+ T cells. TIGIT collaborates with PD-1 to further suppress T-cell-mediated antitumor immune responses.0 Dual targeting of the TIGIT/CD155/CD112 and PD-1/PD-L1 pathways may overcome tumor immune escape and enhance anti-tumor response in patients with advanced solid tumors.0
