Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Programmed Cell Death Protein 1 (PD1 or CD279 or PDCD1) - Pipeline Review, H2 2016" report to their offering.
Programmed Cell Death Protein 1 pipeline Target constitutes close to 55 molecules. Out of which approximately 52 molecules are developed by Companies and remaining by the Universities Institutes.
Programmed Cell Death Protein 1 - Pipeline Review, H2 2016, outlays comprehensive information on the Programmed Cell Death Protein 1 (PD1 or CD279 or PDCD1) targeted therapeutics, complete with analysis by indications, stage of development, mechanism of action (MoA), route of administration (RoA) and molecule type.
Programmed cell death protein 1 also known as PD-1 and CD279 is a protein that encoded by the PDCD1 gene. PD-1 is a cell surface receptor that belongs to the immunoglobulin superfamily and is expressed on T cells and pro-B cells. PD-1 functioning as an immune checkpoint plays an important role in down regulating the immune system by preventing the activation of T-cells, which in turn reduces autoimmunity and promotes self-tolerance.
The inhibitory effect of PD-1 is accomplished through a dual mechanism of promoting apoptosis (programmed cell death) in antigen specific T-cells in lymph nodes while simultaneously reducing apoptosis in regulatory T cells (suppressor T cells). The molecules developed by Companies in Pre-Registration, Phase III, Phase II, Phase I, IND/CTA Filed, Preclinical, Discovery and Unknown stages are 1, 1, 4, 7, 1, 25, 11 and 2 respectively. Similarly, the Universities portfolio in Preclinical stages comprises 3 molecules, respectively.
Furthermore, this report also reviews key players involved in Programmed Cell Death Protein 1 (PD1 or CD279 or PDCD1) targeted therapeutics development, features dormant and discontinued projects and latest news and press releases.
