Comments
Natalizumab was the first migration-inhibitory biological drug to be approved for inflammatory diseases.
Targeting cell migration-related molecules in immune conditions (and cancer) is regarded as a significant new focus for the development of novel anti-inflammatory therapeutics [2].
The design and synthesis of this antibody is described in [1], but the article is not open access.
