DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The "Interleukin-6 (IL-6) Inhibitors Therapeutics Pipeline Analysis, 2017 - Clinical Trials & Results, Patents, Designations, Collaborations, and Other Developments" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.
The study analyzed that the IL-6 inhibitors therapeutics pipeline comprises approximately 18 active drug candidates in different stages of development. Interleukin-6 inhibitors acts on the IL-6 receptor. IL-6 receptors belong to a group of cytokine receptors that are expressed by leukocytes and plays an important role in the functioning of the immune system. It has a characteristic role in systemic inflammation in numerous disease conditions, including rheumatoid arthritis, and psoriatic arthritis.
According to the research findings, most of the drug candidates of the IL-16 inhibitors are being developed as the monoclonal antibody.
The positive clinical results from IL-6 inhibitors drug candidates have been driving the pipeline growth. GlaxoSmithKline plc presented results from two pivotal Phase III studies (NCT01606761; NCT02019472) evaluating subcutaneous sirukumab. In both the studies, sirukumab met the primary endpoint showing significant improvement in the signs and symptoms of moderately to severely active rheumatoid arthritis compared to placebo.
In January 2017, Tiziana Life Sciences plc acquired an exclusive world-wide license for NI-1201, a fully human anti-IL-6R monoclonal antibody (mAb), from Novimmune SA. In exchange for the exclusive license from Novimmune SA, Tiziana Life Sciences plc agreed to an upfront cash payment, milestone payments, and a royalty on future sales.
