10.8 Conclusions

Extensive research in the last few years has clearly proven that TNF is a pro-inflammatory cytokine and thus is involved in the pathogenesis of variety of diseases. Suppression of TNF is a double-edged sword. While unquestionably TNF plays a critical role in inflammation, suppression of TNF will mitigate both its beneficial and its harmful effects. These studies show that safer modulators of TNF are needed.
