We have previously demonstrated that anti-HER2/neu IgG3-(IL-2), (IL-12)-IgG3, or IgG3-(GM-CSF) antibody fusion proteins (mono-AbFPs) elicit anti-tumor activity against murine tumors expressing HER2/neu when used as adjuvants of extracellular domain of HER2/neu (ECD(HER2)) protein vaccination. We have now studied the effect of combinations of IL-2 and IL-12 or IL-12 and GM-CSF mono-AbFPs during vaccination with ECD(HER2). In addition, we developed two novel anti-HER2/neu IgG3-cytokine fusion proteins in which IL-2 and IL-12 or IL-12 and GM-CSF were fused to the same IgG3 molecule (bi-AbFPs). (IL-12)-IgG3-(IL-2) and (IL-12)-IgG3-(GM-CSF) were properly assembled and retained both cytokine activity and the ability to bind antigen. Vaccination of mice with ECD(HER2) and a combination of cytokines as either bi-AbFPs or two mono-AbFPs activated both Thl and Th2 immune responses and resulted in significant protection against challenge with a HER2/neu expressing tumor. Our results suggest that this approach will be effective in the prevention and/or treatment of HER2/neu expressing tumors.
