SAT0058 Adalimumab: TNF complexes are cleared more efficiently by human osteoclasts than those with etanercept through FCG-receptor binding and internalisation

Harvey BP, Cohen-Solal J, Kaymakcalan Z (2018) SAT0058 Adalimumab: TNF complexes are cleared more efficiently by human osteoclasts than those with etanercept through FCG-receptor binding and internalisation. Ann Rheum Dis 77:893. EULAR 2018, Amsterdam, The Netherlands doi: 10.1136/annrheumdis-2018-eular.3804

Objective: To determine whether Fc-gamma receptor (FcgR)-mediated internalization of the biologic:TNF complexes is a contributing mechanism responsible for the difference in effectiveness between ADA and ETN in preventing TNF- enhanced OCgenesis.

Summary: Human osteoclast  (OC) precursors can bind and internalise ADA:TNF complexes more efficiently than ETN:TNF complexes. In addition, this process is partially mediated through FcgRII.

Usage: FcgR-mediated nternalization was assessed by monitoring a reduction in OC survival in response to preformed bio- logic: TNF complexes (25:1 ratio) bound with FabFC-ZAP human ± FcgR blocking antibodies.
