Comment: Sonelokimab (IL17MS3086) is an anti-IL-17A/F single chain camelid nanobody [1]. The peptide sequence for proposed INN sonelokimab is a 100% match for SEQ ID 836 that is claimed in Merck/Ablynx patent WO2012156219A1. IL17MS3086 potently binds to both IL-17A and -F and prevents IL-17R pathway activation (e.g . IL-6 production), and was designed for anti-inflammatory potential. We provide the IL17MS3086 to sonelokimab association in good faith, and await formal disclosure.
