Possible Interaction: Interferon-Alpha and Lycopene



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

These results demonstrate that lycopene has a potent anti-angiogenic effect and that these effect may be associated with its up-regulation of IL-12 and IFN-γ.
The Journal of nutritional biochemistry  •  2013  |  View Paper
Lycopene induced a dose-dependent increase in IL1β, and TNFα production and a decrease in IL-2, IL-10 and IFNγ secretion, whereas that of IL-6 and IL-1ra was not affected.
Immunological investigations  •  2008  |  View Paper
By the methods of immunoprecipitation and immunoblotting, we also found that lycopene inhibited the subsequent formation of the complex of TLR4 with its adaptors including myeloid differentiation primary-response protein 88 and TIR domain-containing adaptor-inducing IFN-β.
