Controlling the Half-Life of Pathological IgG and Therapeutic Antibodies
Various autoimmune diseases (e.g., myasthenia gravis) are mediated by IgG autoantibodies. To address this mechanism of autoimmunity, researchers are exploring the therapeutic use of FcRn inhibitors in an effort to decrease the pathogenesis of IgG and develop new therapies.
In addition, there has been work focused on the FcRn pathway as a means to prolong the half-life of therapeutic antibodies.
