Cachectin and tumour necrosis factor as two sides of the same biological coin.

Abstract

In response to invasive stimuli macrophages secrete cachectin, a multipotent protein. Prominent among its biological effects is the ability to induce wasting (cachexia) as well as a lethal state of shock. The identity of cachectin and tumour necrosis factor has led to a new view of its therapeutic potential.
