Different approaches are available or under investigation to target: (1) pathogenic T cell activity by inhibiting RORc or STAT3 or the co-stimulator pathway by CTLA4-Ig; (2) Th17 cytokine production by anti-IL-17A, anti-IL-22, or combination of anti-IL-17A/anti-TNF approaches; (3) Th17 polarization by neutralizing IL-23 using an anti-IL-23 specific antibody, IL-12/IL-23 by an anti-p40 antibody, or the IL-6 signaling pathway; (4) Th17 migration by interfering the CCR6-CCL20 interaction. The challenge is to bring the best to the clinic to further improve current therapy for patients with RA and to reach stable remission or even prevent the development of this disabling disease.
What is Visualize?
JoVE Visualize is a tool created to match the last 5 years of PubMed publications to methods in JoVE's video library.How does it work?
We use abstracts found on PubMed and match them to JoVE videos to create a list of 10 to 30 related methods videos.Video X seems to be unrelated to Abstract Y...
In developing our video relationships, we compare around 5 million PubMed articles to our library of over 4,500 methods videos. In some cases the language used in the PubMed abstracts makes matching that content to a JoVE video difficult. In other cases, there happens not to be any content in our video library that is relevant to the topic of a given abstract. In these cases, our algorithms are trying their best to display videos with relevant content, which can sometimes result in matched videos with only a slight relation.
