The role of somatic NLRP3 mosaicism and new gene discovery in mutation negative cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome patients.
Background: Cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS) is a group of rare, heterogeneous autoinflammatory disease characterized by interleukin (IL)-1[sz]-mediated systemic inflammation and clinical symptoms involving skin, joints, central nervous system, and eyes.
The immunomodulators are canakinumab (Ilaris; pregnancy class C), indicated for cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome, and golimumab (Simponi; B), indicated (with or without methotrexate) for ankylosing spondylitis, active psoriatic arthritis, or rheumatoid arthritis.
Earlier, Novartis AG received FDA clearance to sell its drug Ilaris as a treatment for cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome.
It is the first approved treatment for patients as young as four who suffer from two forms of cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS), whose symptoms can include debilitating fatigue, rash, fever, headaches, joint pain and conjunctivitis, Novartis said in a statement.
27 September 2011 - Swiss-based pharmaceutical major Novartis AG (VTX:NOVN) said today it had obtained approval from the Japanese Ministry of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) for once-daily Gilenya for the prevention of relapse and delay of progression of physical disability in adults with multiple sclerosis (MS), and for Illaris for adults and children with cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS).
BASEL, Switzerland -- The biotechnology medicine Ilaris (canakinumab) has passed another milestone with a recommendation for approval in the European Union (EU) as a treatment for patients with a lifelong and potentially fatal auto-inflammatory disease called cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS).
Based on data from preclinical studies and a clinical case series suggesting that blockade of the NALP3 inflammasome IL-1 pathway may be an effective treatment strategy for gout, as well as the promising results of a phase III trial of the drug in patients with cryopyrin-associated periodic syndrome (CAPS) arising from NALP3 mutations, Dr.
Ilaris was previously approved for another periodic fever syndrome called Cryopyrin-Associated Periodic Syndromes (CAPS) and for active systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis.
In early 2013, Sobi announced that the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) had approved Kineret for the treatment of children and adults with neonatal-onset multisystem inflammatory disease (NOMID), the most severe form of Cryopyrin-Associated Periodic Syndromes (CAPS).
