(50, 100 mg thalidomide containing sugar coated tablets)
Thalidomide, (RS)-2-(2,6-dioxopiperidin-3-yl)-1H-isoindole-1,3(2H)-dione shows, both in vitro and in vivo, a multitude of biological responses, the most prominent of which are inhibition of angiogenesis and of TNF-α (ATC-Code: L04AX02). The anti angiogenic properties are clearly linked to thalidomide’s teratogenicity.
