ABSTRACT: The purpose of this study was to prepare a fully human anti-VEGF (vascular endothelial growth factor) monoclonal antibody with anti-tumor activity from five-feature mice which express human immunoglobin loci. Four hybridomas secreting mAb stably were isolated successfully. Some characters such as isotypes, cross-reactivity, inhibition on the binding of hVEGF to VEGFR-2, dissociation constants and the idiotypic characteristic were determined. Proliferation of T24 and Ls-174-T cell line and nude mice bearing human colorectal cancer were used to evaluate therapeutic effects and safety of this mAb. Pharmacokinetics data shows the half life of this mAb was about 5 days after a single intravenous injection. These results suggest the fully human anti-VEGF mAb maybe safe and efficient for cancer treatment.
