Answer

Immunomodulators

These agents modify the activity of key factors in the immune system.

Thalidomide (Thalomid)

Thalidomide is only supplied to pharmacies participating in the System for Thalidomide Education and Prescribing Safety (STEPS) program. It is an immunomodulatory agent that may suppress excessive production of tumor necrosis factor-alpha and may down-regulate selected cell surface adhesion molecules involved in leukocyte migration.
