is there such a thing as TNF inhibitors?
| Response from Mr. Vergel
Yes, actually Dr Kotler in NYC is doing a study with TNF (Tumor necrosis factor) inhibitors and lipodystrophy. High TNF levels have been implicated in fat cell death in lipoatrophy and with wasting syndrome. TNF is a cytokine,(protein) produced by the immune system to kill tumor cells, but when it is produced in large amounts it can lead to pro-inflammatory problems.
