Ligand Activity Visualisation Charts
These are box plot that provide a unique visualisation, summarising all the activity data for a ligand taken from ChEMBL and GtoPdb across multiple targets and species. Click on a plot to see the median, interquartile range, low and high data points. A value of zero indicates that no data are available. A separate chart is created for each target, and where possible the algorithm tries to merge ChEMBL and GtoPdb targets by matching them on name and UniProt accession, for each available species. However, please note that inconsistency in naming of targets may lead to data for the same target being reported across multiple charts.✖
|In clinical trial sarilumab significantly reduced the signs and symptoms of RA and improved physical function [1-2,5]. A notable side-effect is immune suppression leading to susceptibility to infection.|
|FDA approved therapeutic for RA (May 2017).|
||Clinical trial in ankylosing spondylitis was terminated.|
||Completed Phase 2 clinical trial for non-infectious uveitis (see NCT01900431).|
