Increased production of proinflammatory cytokines, such as interleikin (IL)-1, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-[alpha], by peripheral and heart infiltrating T cells of patients with rheumatic fever and CRHD have been reported in previous studies (6-12).
UP566 compounds also demonstrated an ability to suppress the gene expression of key proinflammatory cytokines--UP566S, in particular, exhibited antioxidant activity almost four times more powerful than vitamin C, based on ORAC test results.

As to the mechanisms underlying adipocyte dysfunction, they are likely complex and multifactorial, and probably include one or more HAART agents, increased proinflammatory cytokine activity, (22) or proteins expressed by HIV itself.
This is the "cytokine storm," as shown by elevated levels of proinflammatory cytokines including IFNs found in 2 patients who died of H5N1 infections (8).

When testing for proinflammatory cytokines such as tumor necrosis factor-[alpha] (TNF-[alpha]) and interleukin-6 (IL-6), it is essential that all reagents and supplies are free from contamination with endotoxin and other bacteria-derived components with cell-stimulatory activity.

This peptide-nucleic acid, which to date has shown a very favorable safety profile, appears to stimulate the proinflammatory responses required to combat viral infections such as HIV and human papillomavirus and to dampen aberrant autoimmune-type inflammatory responses, such as occur in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
The results demonstrate that cellular response to toxic leachables follows a distinct pathway, starting with up-regulation (elevated production) of proinflammatory cytokines and, depending on the strength of the response, terminating in extensive necrosis (localized death of living cells).
