Scientific summary

Research brief

The goal of the team is to understand how genetic and non-genetic variations translate into variable clinical responses to monoclonal antibodies in treated patients. Our general aim is to fill in the gap between genetics and clinical responses by establishing precise genotype-phenotype relationships for therapeutic antibody elimination and distribution (pharmacokinetics, PK) and mechanisms of action (pharmacodynamics, PD).


Methodologies used

• Pharmacokinetic and pharmacokinetic-pharmacodynamic (PK-PD) modelling of therapeutic monoclonal antibodies in human and in preclinical studies.

• Pharmacogenetics and genotype-phenotype relationships of therapeutic antibodies. In vitro and ex vivo cellular models, clinical studies in treated patients.

• Analysis of role of Fc-gamma-receptors and of FcRn in elimination and distribution of antibodies (pharmacokinetics) and in concentration-effect relationships in vivo (PK-PD).
