BACKGROUND Tumour necrosis factor (TNF) is upregulated in the alveolar space early in the course of ventilator-induced lung injury (VILI). Studies in genetically modified mice indicate that the two TNF receptors play opposing roles during injurious high-stretch mechanical ventilation, with p55 promoting but p75 preventing pulmonary oedema. AIM To(More)
To investigate the impact of a new class of anti-Ig autoantibodies reactive with variable heavy (VH) chain framework sequences (human anti-VH autoantibodies) on the pharmacology and safety of an anti-TNFR1 VH domain antibody (GSK1995057) in healthy human subjects. Single-blind, randomised, placebo-controlled dose escalation study in which healthy males (n =(More)
BACKGROUND Tumor necrosis factor-α (TNF) is strongly implicated in the development of acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS), but its potential as a therapeutic target has been hampered by its complex biology. TNF signals through two receptors, p55 and p75, which play differential roles in pulmonary edema formation during ARDS. We have recently shown(More)
During clinical trials of a tumour necrosis factor (TNF)-R1 domain antibody (dAb™) antagonist (GSK1995057), infusion reactions consistent with cytokine release were observed in healthy subjects with high levels of a novel, pre-existing human anti-VH (HAVH) autoantibody. In the presence of HAVH autoantibodies, GSK1995057 induced cytokine release in vitro due(More)
