Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha, Inflammation and Influenza Virus

Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha(TNF-α) is a cytokine that refers to systemic inflammatory response syndrome(SIRS), at the same time, it is also one of cytokines which bring acute phase reaction. It is majorly secreted by macrophage, but other types of cells can produce Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha as well. Surprisingly scientists found that Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha can inhibit the duplication of different kinds of influenza virus, having strong anti-virus capacity.


Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha inhibitor can provide reference for many inflammation diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, spondyloarthritis, psoriasis and inflammatory bowel disease. Compared with other traditional unspecific immunological inhibitor to treat systemic inflammatory response syndrome(SIRS), Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha inhibitor provides a fresh new targeted therapy strategy. However the use of Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha inhibitor may bring other side affects to the patient being treated including below:

◎Headache and Inflammation

◎Increased serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT)

◎Abdominal pain, nausea and diarrhea

◎sinusitis, cough and pharyngitis


◎Skin rash

◎Injection site reactions

Accumulating research evidence indicates that many patients seriously affected by COVID-19 might have a cytokine storm syndrome.This suggests that people with serious COVID-19 or suspected COVID-19 infection, should be monitored for hyperinflammation. Tumor Necrosis Factor Alpha(TNF-α) has close relation with inflation and Influenza virus.
