PGG β-glucan (Imprime PGG®, Imprime) primes innate immune cells to kill monoclonal antibody-targeted cancer cells via complement receptor 3 (CR3). In humans, naturally occurring anti-beta glucan antibodies (ABA) are required for binding of Imprime to CR3. Subjects with ABA levels conducive to binding are considered “biomarker positive” (BM+).
