Etanercept manufacturing is based on expression by a protein recombinant technology using Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cell. This molecule is composed of 934 amino acids with weight of 150 KDa and acts as a TNFα Blocker. TNFα is a kind of cytokine which is produced by monocytes and macrophages and increases white cells flow to the site of inflammation. According to this function and some other related mechanisms, TNFα could increase inflammation. So, Etanercept decreases inflammation responses through inhibiting the mentioned TNFα mechanism which is completely effective in treatment of autoimmune diseases.
