MDX-018
DrugBank Accession Number
DB05484
Background

MDX-018, also known as HuMax-Inflam, is a fully human antibody that is directed to IL-8 (interleukin-8) and may have potential application in oncology and inflammation. Trials will initially focus on studies to treat glioblastoma, a cancer of the central nervous system. Other possible indications include chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and pustular dermatoses. In pre-clinical studies, HuMax-Inflam has been shown to inhibit tumor growth in tumor models using primary human tumors in immunodeficient mice. HuMax-Inflam was also effective in reducing disease activity in palmoplantar pustulosis patients in a clinical study.

Pharmacodynamics

MDX-018 is a fully human anti-inflammatory antibody for the treatment of Autoimmune Disease. The drug inhibits tumour growth by targetting interleukin-8 (IL-8), a major inflammation mediator. It reduces disease activity in palmoplantar pustulosis patients and is also effective in the treatment of glioblastoma, which has a very low survival rate.

Mechanism of action

he drug inhibits tumour growth by targetting interleukin-8 (IL-8), a major inflammation mediator.
