Evaluation of TNF-alpha and IL-1 blockade in collagen-induced arthritis and comparison with combined anti-TNF-alpha/anti-CD4 therapy.
We have evaluated the effects of anti-TNF-alpha, anti-IL-1, and combined anti-TNF-alpha/anti-CD4 therapy in collagen-induced arthritis. Blockade of TNF-alpha or IL-1 before disease onset delayed, but did not prevent, the induction of arthritis. When treatment was initiated after onset of arthritis, anti-TNF-alpha, anti-IL-1beta, and anti-IL-1R (which blocks IL-1alpha and IL-1beta) were all found to be effective in reducing the severity of arthritis, with anti-IL-1R and anti-IL-1beta showing g...Expand abstract
