Project: Development of a safe antitumor treatment with TNF and Interferon

project duration
01-OCT-02 – 30-SEP-05
abstract
The combination of TNF and interferons has a very powerful anti tumor activity, but is also toxic because of the pro-inflammatory nature of both cytokines. In this project, we want to follow several approaches in order to find genes, encoding protective proteins, that will allow a safer use of TNF in treatment of cancer.
