What is Lactoferrin and TNF-Alpha?

Lactoferrin is a protein found in a monomer or tetramer, that is involved in iron homeostasis, innate defense against microbial infections, anti-inflammatory activity, regulation of cellular growth and differentiation and protection against cancer. Elevated levels of lactoferrin are associated with Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) such as Ulcerative Colitis (UC) or Crohn’s Disease (CD).

TNF-Alpha’s primary role is the regulation of immune cels. It stimulates apoptotic cell death, cell proliferation, and differentiation, inhibits tumor genesis and viral replication. Elevated levels of TNF-Alpha are found in patients suffering from Crohn’s Disease (CD), Ulcerating Colitis (UC), or Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA).
