(96,97,98,99,100,101,102,103,104,105,106) Results of studies conducted indicate that the rate of CNTF release can be controlled, the pharmacokinetic profile is appropriate, there is no passage into systemic circulation, the cells in the implant maintain their viability for the specified duration and there is no antibody formation against CNTF or the cells.

On the 3rd day after scraping the corneal epithelium, the mRNA expression levels of the BDNF, CNTF, NTF3, and NTF4/5 among the control, diabetic, and the diabetic + SA groups showed no statistical difference [all P > 0.05; [Figure 6].{Figure 6}
Regarding astrogenesis, when treated with basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) and IL-6 family cytokine CNTF, cultured rat lgNSCs produced more astrocytes compared with lgNSCs treated only with CNTF, although bFGF alone cannot induce astrogenesis.
MyoG-positive muscle fibers were stained with antibodies against ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) and MyoG (brown).
demonstrated that BMSCs secreted NGF, BDNF, glial cell derived neurotrophic factor (GDNF), neurotrophin 3 (NT3), bFGF, vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF), hepatocyte growth factor (HGF), and ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) [47].
CNTF reverses obesity-induced insulin resistance by activating skeletal muscle AMPK.
Similarly, the expression of 18 cytokine genes (IL-7, IL-10, TNFAIP8, SPP2, TNFAIP3, IFNB, CCL19, TNFAIP8L1, IL-16, CNTF, CXCL13, TNFAIP8L3, TNFSF13B, IL-34, TGFB1, TNFAIP2, CCL3, and ADIPOQ) and 39 cytokine receptor genes (CXCR7, CSF2RA, IL-1RL1, I-L1R2, IL-17RA, IFNAR1, IL-18RAP, IL-31RA, IL-9R, IL-18R1, IL-20RB, IL-21R, IL-2RG, IL-20RA, IL-4I1, LILRB1, TLR1, IL-17REL, LILRB5, TGFBR1, TLR6, TNFRSF13B, XCR1, TLR7, TNFRSF13C, TLR15 etc.) was also markedly upregulated by 2.03- to 8.41-fold and 2.08- to 9.12-fold, respectively, in chicken line 7.2 with p < 0.01 and fold [greater than or equal to] 2 (Supplementary Table S4, Figures 4 and 5).
Four-week-old animals were given doses of a modified virus in one eye in order to make their retinas produce a human protein, called ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF), which may be toxic at high doses.
(2004) investigated the role of ciliary neurotrophic factor (CNTF) and brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) in the survival and maturation of a subset of motor neurons innervating the extensor digitorum longus (EDL) and tibialis anterior (TA) muscles.
Ciliary Neurotrophic Factor (CNTF) have profound effect on the in vitro survival of neuronal cell types such as sympathetic neurons, dorsal root, trigeminal, nodosa ganglia and spinal motor neurons.
