Mechanism of actionAME-527 is approximately ten-fold more potent than Remicade(R) in binding to and neutralizing the hTNF-alpha molecule, and 6 to 8-fold more potent than Humira(TM). Tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) has a key role in rheumatoid synovitis, as an inflammatory cytokine at the top of the inflammatory cascade. Blocking TNF-alpha with AME-527 or fusion proteins is an important and established disease intervention, validating the role of the cytokine in disease activity and progression.

Pharmacological action
General Function:
Tumor necrosis factor receptor binding
Specific Function:
Cytokine that binds to TNFRSF1A/TNFR1 and TNFRSF1B/TNFBR. It is mainly secreted by macrophages and can induce cell death of certain tumor cell lines. It is potent pyrogen causing fever by direct action or by stimulation of interleukin-1 secretion and is implicated in the induction of cachexia, Under certain conditions it can stimulate cell proliferation and induce cell differentiation. Impairs ...
