pro-inflammatory effector mechanisms involving TNF-alpha and by the use of
targeted therapies, the anti-TNF-alpha antibodies. In the past 10 years, our
experience has helped several hundreds of patients who were treated with novel

clinical research on these new drugs has also generated derived research works
allowing the university hospital to satisfactorilly fullfil its specific
