Monoclonal Antibodies (MAbs) Define Human Cytochrome P450 Drug Metabolism

The application of the invention reported herein will be useful for reducing the incidence of adverse drug reactions (ADR) causing serious toxicity and mortality from certain drugs and toxicity from drug-drug interactions (DDI). The MAb system will be useful in the search for new drugs in Drug Discovery. The system engages the use of specific inhibitory monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) to identify, measure and quantitate the role of each human Cytochrome P450 in the metabolism of drugs, NCEs (new chemical entities) or xenobiotics that can be toxic to the human population. Hybridoma clones have been isolated that produce MAbs uniquely specific to human P450s 1A1, 1A2, 2A6, 2C8, 2C9, 2C9*2, 2C19, 2C family (8,9,18,19), 2D6, 2E1, and 3A4/5. The MAbs are highly inhibitory (80-90%) to the enzyme activity of the target P450 and thus the amount of inhibition of the metabolism of the substrate drug incubated with human liver microsomes defines the maximum contribution of the target P450 to the metabolism of the drug or other substrate. The MAbs also immunoblot the target P450 permitting the identification of the target P450 in cells and tissues. In stark contrast to other complex commonly used analytic systems that are selective, the MAb system is specific to the target P450 and is the basis for an extraordinary simple in vitro methodology. The microsome-MAb system (in vitro) defines the contribution of the target P450 to the metabolism of the substrate and identifies substrates metabolized by a single or multiple P450s and P450s catalyzing alternate metabolic pathways. Substrates metabolized by a single P450 or through a specific metabolic route can be used as a marker probe (in vivo) for examining the role of different P450 isoforms in the metabolism of drugs. They are also used for individual phenotyping for studying the genetic potential for individual drug metabolism. Additional applications include the study of polymorphic P450s to identify the metabolic consequences of the absence of a polymorphic P450 in an individual. The MAbs, listed below, are present in ascites fluid and are generally useful for all of the procedures described above. Some are also available in purified form.
