Abstract

A by-product of cancer (and of other chronic diseases or severe trauma), cachexia appears to be mediated by various cytokines. The first to be identified-tumor necrosis factor-may be a principal mediator. With molecular cloning techniques, future treatment strategies could include blockade of TNF activity using highly specific reagents.
