Cytokines are endogenous proteins with paracrine and endocrine functions. Some of these cytokines play a pivotal role in inducing and sustaining the inflammatory process by affecting both the humoral and cellular responses. Interleukin-1 (IL-1) has a key role as a coordinator of the inflammatory Cited by: Cytokines: Physiology and Clinical Relevance Pranay D.

Cytokines are important protein mediators of immunity, inflammation, cell proliferation, differentiation, and fibrosis.1 These are the major biological processes underlying autoimmunity. Hence, it is not surprising that there is now convincing evidence that the dysregulation of cytokines plays an important role in the pathogenesis of autoimmunity.2,3Author: Xin Xiao Zheng, Wlodzmierz Maslinski, Sylvie Ferrari-Lacraz, Terry B. Strom.
These disease-specific cytokine patterns give rise to a second tier of cytokines that span the Th1/ThTh2 divide and act as upstream facilitators and downstream mediators of inflammation. Cytokine antagonists can inhibit action of cytokines by acting directly on receptors, by affecting production of cytokines or by binding to cytokines and preventing their subsequent action. Recent evidence suggests that Hansen’s disease, which is characterized by reactional states, is associated with elevated serum levels of tumour necrosis factor-α (tnf -α) and interleukin-1β during . CRS is a systemic inflammatory response that can be caused by infection, some drugs and other factors, characterised by a sharp increase in the level of a large number of pro-inflammatory cytokines,,.CRS is more common in immune system-related diseases and immune-related therapy such as chimeric antigen receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapy, organ transplantation sepsis and viral infections.

Effects of lipocortin-1 on cell differentiation in vitros, have been seen at ngml-I lipocortin_, and g~wth arrest of A cells has been observed at ng m (Ref. 4).

Cytokines are key modulators of inflammation, participating in acute and chronic inflammation via a complex and sometimes seemingly contradictory network of interactions. Better understanding of how these pathways are regulated helps facilitate more accurate identification of agents mediating inflammation and the treatment of inflammatory by: Melli M Parentes L eds.
