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

Inducer-specific TNF-alpha gene regulation in T lymphocytes

Alla Tsytsykova, Ph.D.
The Center for Blood Research (affiliated with Harvard University)
Boston, Massachusetts
This is the second year Dr. Tsytsykova has received funding for her work from ANRF. She is continuing her work studying the process by which the TNF-alpha gene is activated in T lymphocytes (the largest cell population in the synovial fluid of joints). The knowledge gained could lead to new therapies that interrupt TNF-alpha gene expression underlying the onset of rheumatoid arthritis.
