Although the causes of rheumatoid arthritis are not fully understood, constitutive overproduction of interleukin-6 (IL-6), a multifunctional cytokine that regulates immune response, inflammatory reaction and bone metabolism, is thought to play a major pathological role in RA. With the recent approval of tocilizumab, a humanized anti-IL-6 receptor antibody originating from Chugai and under development at Roche in Western countries, this target has become clinically validated and now can show its commercial potential in competition with TNF blockers.

The report includes a compilation of currently active projects in research and development of interleukin-6 (IL-6) and IL-6 receptor (IL-6R) antagonists. In addition, the report lists company-specific R&D pipelines of IL-6/R antagonists. Competitor projects are listed in a tabular format providing information on:

- Drug Codes,

- Target / Mechanism of Action,

- Class of Compound,

- Company,

- Product Category/Therapeutic Area,

- Indication,

- R&D Stage and

- additional comments with a hyperlink leading to the source of information.
