ANIMASCOPE receives an EUREKA / EUROSTARS grant for the project ANIDIAG, in collaboration with IMMUNOCORE Soluble T Cell Receptors (TCRs) produced by Immunocore are able to target epitopes that cannot be reached by conventional monoclonal antibodies. While monoclonal antibodies have revolutionized the treatment of a range of diseases, their continued expansion is now limited by the lack of new protein targets. Antibodies target cell surface proteins, while the majority of disease-relevant proteins are either secreted (i.e. released from the cell) or remained within the cell (intracellular proteins). TCRs are able to actively target cells expressing. intracellular and secreted target proteins, opening up the ability to select a number of known, well validated and exceptionally clean targets.
