A bispecific antibody agonist of the IL-2 heterodimeric receptor promotes in vivo expansion of CD8 and NK cells

  • Development and activity of bispecific antibodies that simultaneously bind and activate IL-2Rβγ
  • Bispecific anti-IL-2Rβγ antibodies avoid IL-2Rα and toxicities associated with the trimeric receptor
  • IL-2Rβγ agonist antibodies expand T and NK effector cells both in vitro and in vivo and avoid preferential expansion of Tregs
