Additional Details: [+]
Used to treat rheumatoid arthritis, Anakinra blocks the biologic activity of IL-1 by competitively inhibiting IL-1 binding to the interleukin-1 type I receptor (IL-1RI), which is expressed in a wide variety of tissues and organs. IL-1 production is induced in response to inflammatory stimuli and mediates various physiologic responses including inflammatory and immunological responses. Patients with rheumatoid arthritis have elevated levels of IL-1. The levels of the naturally occurring IL-1Ra in synovium and synovial fluid from rheumatoid arthritis (RA) patients are not sufficient to compete with the elevated amount of locally produced IL-1. Increasing the levels of IL-1Ra by artificial means reduces the negative effects (cartilage degradation, bone resorption) of IL-1.
|Mode of Action:||
Anakinra binds competitively to the Interleukin-1 type I receptor (IL-1RI), thereby inhibiting the action of elevated levels IL-1 which normally can lead to cartilage degradation and bone resorption.
- The FDA has approved Anakinra CAS# 143090-92-0 marketed as Kineret® for the treatment of children and adults with neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID). Kineret® is the first and only FDA-approved therapy for NOMID, the most severe form of cryopyrin associated periodic syndromes (CAPS).
- 5 years of treatment with NOMID patients demonstrated that, in addition to controlling the daily symptoms of the disease, hearing and vision remain stable and do not progress on treatment.
- Certain cases of NOMID cause severe symptoms, like headaches, seizures and vomiting which result from chronic meningitis.
