The journey of canakinumab; on- and off-label indications
The role of interleukin-1 (IL-1) has been studied in many diseases, ranging from auto-inflammatory diseases to malignancies, and much has been discovered. There are currently four IL-1 inhibitors available, but only two have been approved in Europe: the receptor antagonist anakinra, and the IL-1b selective inhibitor canakinumab. The aim of this paper is to summarise the on- and off-label use of canakinumab (ILARIS®).
PlumX Metrics provide insights into the ways people interact with individual pieces of research output (articles, conference proceedings, book chapters, and many more) in the online environment. Examples include, when research is mentioned in the news or is tweeted about. Collectively known as PlumX Metrics, these metrics are divided into five categories to help make sense of the huge amounts of data involved and to enable analysis by comparing like with like.
