Approved drug
amivantamab is an approved drug (FDA & EMA (2021))
Compound class: Antibody
Comment: Amivantamab (JNJ-61186372) is a bispecific monoclonal that targets EGFR and MET [2,4,7]. Examination of binding by surface plasmon resonance confirms that JNJ-61186372 can bind to EGFR and MET simultaneously [2]. JNJ-61186372 binding inhibits phosphorylation of both of the target receptor tyrosine kinases in vitro. Tackling the tyrosine kinases from outside the cell is hypothesised to override the issue of treatment resistance due to kinase mutations that frequently arise during therapy with intracellulary-acting small molecule kinase inhibitors [3,5-6].
Annotated peptide sequences for this antibody are available from its IMGT/mAb-DB record.

Summary of Clinical Use Click here for help
Janssen R&D progressed this dual MET/EGFR monoclonal to clinical development for advanced NSCLC (see NCT02609776), and by 2020 it had reached Phase 3. At that time there was an expanded access program in place, to provide amivantamab treatment for patients with otherwise untreatable (progressing, platinum-based chemotherapy resistant), advanced NSCLC with EGFR exon 20 insertion mutations (see NCT04599712). The FDA granted accelerated approval for that indication in May 2021 [1].
