The changes of circulating tumor necrosis factor levels in patients with congestive heart failure influenced by therapy.

Abstract

Recent studies suggest that tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) plays an important role in the pathogenesis of congestive heart failure and that drugs used in the treatment of heart failure have modulation effects on the production of TNF-alpha. To examine an alteration of circulating TNF-alpha concentration in patients with severe chronic heart failure… (More)
