GSK3050002 (KANAb071)

GSK3050002 (previously known as KANAb071) is an investigational monoclonal antibody that is an antagonist for human CCL20, a chemokine ligand that binds to the CCR6 receptor.  The CCL20/CCR6 interaction is implicated in a range of autoimmune diseases.  GSK3050002 was investigated in a Phase 1 safety and tolerability study (NCT01984047) in healthy volunteers, and is the first investigational antibody to enter clinical development from the collaboration established between GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) and Morphotek. GSK recently initiated a Phase 1 study (NCT02671188) in psoriatic arthritis patients.

 GSK3050002 was developed from a non-humanized antibody originally discovered by KAN Research Institute, Inc., a subsidiary of Eisai Co., Ltd.
