Immunopharmacology Ligand
Compound class: Antibody
Comment: Clazakizumab is an investigational, aglycosylated, humanized (from a rabbit parental antibody) monoclonal antibody targeting interleukin-6, with anti-inflammatory potential [2].
Peptide sequence and structural information for this antibody are available from its IMGT/mAb-db record. BLAST peptide sequence analysis reveals identical matches with peptides claimed in patent US8062864 [3]. Results presented in the patent show that the preferred antibodies block interaction of IL-6 with the IL-6 receptor, but no precise binding affinity data is provided.
