Bristol-Myers Squibb Company

Drug Names(s): CTLA4Ig, abatacept, BMS-188667, ONO-4164

Description: Orencia is the first in a class of drugs known as co-stimulation blockers. Orencia is a soluble fusion protein that consists of the extracellular domain of human cytotoxic T-lymphocyte-associated antigen 4 (CTLA-4) linked to the modified Fc portion of human immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1). Orencia inhibits T cell activation by binding to CD80 and CD86, which are costimulatory ligands of antigen-presenting cells, thereby blocking interaction with CD28. This blocks the costimulatory signal necessary for full activation of T lymphocytes.
