Immunopharmacology Comments
ADAMTS4 and -5 diminish cartilage integrity in rheumatoid arthritis (RA), via their participation in aggrecan degradation [4-5]. ADAMTS5 is a validated drug target for osteoarthritis (OA), with experimental inhibitors attenuating joint damage in models of OA. Galapagos NV have an active ADAMTS5 programme, with their lead compound GLPG1972 (licensed to Servier in mid-2017) in Phase 1 clinical trial in patients with OA (see NCT03311009). A humanized anti-ADAMTS5 monoclonal antibody, GSK2394002 [3] which inhibits ADAMTS5 catalytic activity (Ki 0.08 nM), was identified as a potential disease modifying therapeutic for OA, but to date (April 2018) this does not appear to have progressed beyond preclinical evaluation.
