This biosimilar antibody is aseptically packaged and formulated in 0.01 M phosphate buffered saline (150 mM NaCl) PBS pH 7.2 - 7.4 with no carrier protein, potassium, calcium or preservatives added. Due to inherent biochemical properties of antibodies, certain products may be prone to precipitation over time. Precipitation may be removed by aseptic centrifugation and/or filtration.
State of Matter
Product Preparation
Recombinant biosimilar antibodies are manufactured in an animal free facility using only in vitro protein free cell culture techniques and are purified by a multi-step process including the use of protein A or G to assure extremely low levels of endotoxins, leachable protein A or aggregates.
Storage and Handling
Functional grade biosimilar antibodies may be stored sterile as received at 2-8°C for up to one month. For longer term storage, aseptically aliquot in working volumes without diluting and store at -80°C. Avoid Repeated Freeze Thaw Cycles.
Regulatory Status
Research Use Only (RUO). Non-Therapeutic.
Country of Origin
2-8°C Wet Ice

Each investigator should determine their own optimal working dilution for specific applications. See directions on lot specific datasheets, as information may periodically change.


Sintilimab activity is directed against human and cynomolgus PD-1.
Antigen Distribution
PD-1 is expressed on activated T cells, B cells, a subset of thymocytes, macrophages, dendritic cells, and some tumor cells and is also retained in the intracellular compartments of regulatory T cells (Tregs).
PD-1 is a transmembrane protein in the CD28/CTLA-4 subfamily of the Ig superfamily 1,2. When stimulated via the T cell receptor (TCR), Tregs translocate PD-1 to the cell surface 3. Programmed cell death 1 ligand 1 (PD-L1; CD274; B7H1) and programmed cell death 1 ligand 2 (PD-L2; CD273; B7DC) have been identified as PD-1 ligands 1. PD-1 is co-expressed with PD-L1 on tumor cells and tumor-infiltrating antigen-presenting cells (APCs) 2. Additionally, PD-1 is co-expressed with IL2RA on activated CD4+ T cells 3.

PD-1 is an immune checkpoint receptor that suppresses cancer-specific immune responses 4. Additionally, PD-1 acts as a T cell inhibitory receptor and plays a critical role in peripheral tolerance induction and autoimmune disease prevention as well as important roles in the survival of dendritic cells, macrophage phagocytosis, and tumor cell glycolysis 2. PD-1 prevents uncontrolled T cell activity, leading to attenuation of T cell proliferation, cytokine production, and cytolytic activities. Additionally, the PD-1 pathway is a major mechanism of tumor immune evasion, and, as such, PD-1 is a target of cancer immunotherapy 2.

Sintilimab is a fully human monoclonal antibody that helps restore the endogenous antitumor T cell response by binding to PD-1 on activated T cells and blocking PD-1 from interacting with PD-L1 and PD-L2 5. Sintilimab’s interaction with PD-1 depends on the hydrophobic and aromatic amino acid residues in its complementarity-determining region 6. Sintilimab rapidly occupies PD-1 receptors on the surface of CD3+ T cells in peripheral blood and relies on antibody-dependent cell cytotoxicity as its mechanism of action 5. Sintilimab is also known as IBI-308 and its chemical name is anti-(human programmed cell death protein 1) (human monoclonal IBI308 gamma4-chain), disulphide with human monoclonal IBI308 kappa-chain, dimer. Sintilimab was generated by yeast display technology 7.
