Methods for treating autoimmune and chronic inflammatory conditions using antagonists of CD30 or CD30L
The invention provides methods of treating autoimmune and chronic inflammatory conditions by administering agents that hinder the CD30/CD30L interaction, combination treatments, and methods of treating conditions resistant to treatment with TNF.alpha. inhibitors by administering agents that inhibit signal transduction by CD30 or IL-1. Included also are treatments involving concurrently administering agents that block the CD30/CD30L interaction and agents that antagonize the IL-4/IL-4R interaction. Additionally provided is an animal model for screening candidate agents for their efficacy in treating conditions that are resistant to treatment with TNF.alpha. inhibitors.
