Roquinimex (Cat No.:I005036) is an immunomodulator that inhibits the secretion of TNF-α. It enhances natural killer (NK) cell activity and T lymphocyte-mediated effector functions, making it a novel immunomodulatory drug. Additionally, Roquinimex demonstrates potential as an orally active anti-angiogenic agent, indicating its effectiveness in inhibiting blood vessel formation. These properties suggest that Roquinimex holds promise as an anti-tumor therapy.
