Anti-RSV [RSHZ19 (Felvizumab)] Standard size

Description: Recombinant monoclonal antibody to RSV. Manufactured using AbAb’s Recombinant Platform with variable regions (i.e. specificity) from the hybridoma RSHZ19 (Felvizumab). This is a Fab fragment with a his-tag.
Isotype and Format: Human Fab fragment, His-Tagged, kappa
Clone Number: RSHZ19 (Felvizumab)
Published Application(s): functional; ELISA
Published Species Reactivity: RSV
Immunogen: This antibody was prepared by the humanization of an F protein-specific murine MAb, RSV19. More specifically, molecular techniques were used to insert the complementarity determining regions from murine RSV19 into a human IgG1 heavy and k light chain-variable domain framework.
Specificity: This antibody is specific for the conserved fusion (F) protein of RSV.
Application Notes: Though shown to be safe and well-tolerated (Everitt, 1996) and protective against RSV infection in BALB/c mice and cotton rats (Wyde, 1995), this antibody did not demonstrate efficacy in a Phase 3 study (Reichert, 2008). In in vitro studies, palivizumab, another humanized Mab specific for the F protein of RSV, was 4 to 5-fold more potent than felvizumab in neutralising RSV (Scott, 1999).
