The following is a description of a study from one of the many researchers that our organization has funded.

Alla Tsytsykova, Ph.D.
The Center for Blood Research (an affiliate of Harvard Medical School)
Boston, Massachusetts
Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha (TNF-alpha) is a protein responsible for inflammation and, ultimately, cartilage destruction in the joints of individuals with rheumatoid arthritis. Dr. Tsytsykova’s project will study how the TNF-alpha gene is activated in T-lymphoctyes, the cells in the synovial fluid of joints that secrete TNF-alpha. The knowledge gained from this study may potentially lead to the development of therapies that interrupt TNF-alpha gene expression in RA.
