Compound class: Antibody
Comment: AFM13 is a tetravalent bispecific anti-CD30/CD16A tandem diabody that is constructed solely from Fv domains [1]. It is being developed by Affimed as a novel NK cell-engaging immuno-oncology therapeutic for the treatment of CD30-expressing malignancies. AFM13 simultaneously binds CD30 on Hodgkin's lymphoma cells and CD16A (FcγRIIIA) on NK cells, and acts to selectively recruit NK cells immune effector cells to destroy the cancer cells. AFM's mechanism of action differs from that of the anti-CD30 antibody-drug conjugate brentuximab vedotin, and it was found to be active in brentuximab vedotin-refractory patients in Phase 1 trial [2].
