A lthough prostate cancer is the most commonly diagnosed cancer in men and second leading cancer-related cause of death in the Western Civilization there is currently no curative option for advanced stages. A new approach in cancer therapy has been the retargeting of T-cells to the tumor cells by bispecifi c recombinant antibody fragments, termed diabodies. We have constructed a PSMAxCD3 diabody directed against the prostate specifi c membrane antigen (PSMA) on prostate cancer cells and the epsilon-chain of CD3 on T-cells. In the present study, the eff ectivity of the diabody was characterized in vitro and in vivo. Aft er expression into the periplasm of XL-1 Blue E.coli bacteria, the diabody was purifi ed by Immobilized Metal Affi nity Chromatography (IMAC). For determining the cytotoxic potential, PSMA-positive C4-2 cells were incubated with CD4+ and CD8+ lymphocytes. Lysis of the C4-2 cells was measured by a WST-1 assay. Our study proves that the PSMAxCD3 diabody is very potent in eliminating PSMA-positive pros tate cancer cells by redirected lysis through CD3-positive T-lymphocytes in vitro . In a SCID mouse model with C4-2 xenograft tumors, the diabody together with human peripheral blood lymphocytes effi ciently inhibited tumor growth. Th e results suggest the diabody to be a powerful agent which could contribute to an eff ective new therapy against prostate cancer
