Amivantamab

Active ingredient description

Amivantamab is a low-fucose, fully-human IgG1-based EGFR-MET bispecific antibody with immune cell-directing activity that targets tumours with activating EGFR Exon 20 insertion mutations. Amivantamab binds to the extracellular domains of EGFR and MET. Amivantamab disrupts EGFR and MET signalling functions through blocking ligand binding and enhancing degradation of EGFR and MET, thereby preventing tumour growth and progression.
