This non-therapeutic antibody uses the same variable region sequence as the therapeutic antibody Sarilumab. Sarilumab binds to the transmembrane and soluble forms of the IL-6 receptor. This product is for research use only.
IL-6R is ubiquitously expressed.
IL-6 and its signaling pathway play a part in immune response regulation, inflammation, and hematopoiesis.2 Sarilumab is a research-grade recombinant human monoclonal IL-6 receptor antagonist. It specifically binds to both the transmembrane and soluble forms of the IL-6 receptor, thus inhibiting IL-6–mediated cis and trans-signaling in a dose-dependent manner.1 Therapeutic Sarilumab, also known by the trade name Kevzara, is currently used to treat Rheumatoid Arthritis1, however, as of March 2020, The Feinstein Institute of Northwell Health publicized a study on "a human antibody that may prevent the activity" of IL-6 for the treatment of COVID-19.3 Anti-Human IL-6 (Sarilumab) utilizes the same variable regions from the therapeutic antibody Sarilumab making it ideal for research projects.
