Lerdelimumab (CAT-152, intended trade name Trabio) is a human monoclonal antibody and an immunosuppressive drug targeting TGF beta 2.

It was being developed to reduce scarring after glaucoma drainage surgery.[1] Development was stopped in late 2005 after unsuccessful trial results for that condition.[2]
