Comment: Belantamab mafodotin (GSK2857916) is a humanised BCMA-targeting antibody-drug conjugate that is in clinical development for multiple myeloma. Mafodotin is the cytotoxic, synthetic antineoplastic monomethyl auristatin F (MMAF; PubChem CID 56841603). Belantamab mafodotin is an IgG1 class antibody so, in addition to its delivery of a cytotoxin, it is predicted to exhibit lytic activity (through complement binding) and/or induce antibody-dependent cell cytotoxicity (ADCC). GlaxoSmithKline claim anti-BCMA ADCs in patent US9273141B2 [1]. SEQ IDs 55 and 63 from US9273141B2 match the full-length heavy chain and light chain sequences respectively, that were submitted to the WHO for the belantamab mafodotin INN.
