Purpose Section 5 of the International Air Transportation Fair Competitive Practices Act of 1974 (49 U.S.C. 1517) (Fly America Act) requires that all Federal agencies and Government contractors and subcontractors at FAR 47.402, use U.S.-flag air carriers for U.S. Government-financed international air transportation of personnel (and their personal effects) or property, to the extent that service by those carriers is available. It requires the Comptroller General of the United States, in the absence of satisfactory proof of the necessity for foreign-flag air transportation, to disallow expenditures from funds, appropriated or otherwise established for the account of the United States, for international air transportation secured aboard a foreignflag air carrier if a U.S.-flag air carrier is available to provide such services. In the event that the contractor selects a carrier other than a U.S.-flag air carrier for international air transportation during performance of the contract, the contractor shall include per FAR clause 52.247–64 a statement on vouchers involving such transportation. The contracting officer uses the information furnished in the statement to determine whether adequate justification exists for the contractor’s use of other than a U.S.flag air carrier. B.

SUMMARY: DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES ACTION: National Institutes of Health, Engineered Antibody Domains With Increased FcRn Binding and in vivo Half-Life Description of Technology: Monoclonal antibodies (mAbs) are a fast growing class of new therapeutic molecules. However, their large size remains a significant challenge, preventing them from targeting sterically restricted epitopes and efficiently penetrating into tissues. Smaller antibody fragments and engineered variants are under development to address this challenge, but to date their therapeutic applications have been limited due to rapid clearance and short half-life which greatly decrease their efficacy in vivo. PO 00000 Frm 00049 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 This technology describes two antibody constant domains or binders with increased FcRn binding and in vivo half-life. In addition, these binders are small in size (16kDa), very stable, and can be efficiently expressed in E. coli. As a result, the binders are particularly well suited as scaffolds for the generation of antibody libraries, from which a desired antigen binders could be developed into therapeutic products with much greater potency compared to existing mAbs. They could also be used as fusion partners to extend the half-life of candidate protein therapeutics. Potential Commercial Applications • Antibody scaffolds for library construction, and the generation of therapeutics against various diseases. • Fusion partners to extend the halflife of candidate protein therapeutics. Competitive Advantages • Small (16kD) size for better tissue penetration, and in the case of fusion proteins, reduced steric hindrance for therapeutic activity. • Superior stability compared to isolated CH2 domains and stability comparable to or higher than that of an isolated Fc fragment. • Exhibit greatly enhanced FcRn binding abilities, including more potent transcytosis and longer in vivo half-life. • Can be efficiently expressed in E. coli. Development Stage • Early-stage • In vitro data available • In vivo data available (animal) Inventors: Dimiter Dimitrov and Tianlei Ying (NCI).
