Dr. Tadamitsu Kishimoto, professor at Osaka University, discovered and cloned IL-6, a cytokine that regulates antibody production. His group later identified and cloned its receptor and demonstrated the involvement of IL-6 in the pathogenesis of various inflammatory diseases. He then prepared a monoclonal anti-IL-6 receptor antibody and helped conduct large-scale trials on the efficacy and safety of the antibody in patients with rheumatoid arthritis as well as children with juvenile arthritis. Dr. Kishimoto's work transformed the cytokine field and converted it from descriptive biology to modern molecular science and medicine. His work has also led to major clinical breakthroughs and development of new therapeutics for severe multi-organ chronic diseases. The contributions of Dr. Kishimoto encompass basic discovery, hypothesis forming, drug discovery and clinical translation, a true bench to bedside example. … [Read more...] about Inhibiting Inflammatory Responses, Three Scientists Awarded 2020 Tang Prize in Biopharmaceutical Science
