Cytokines: Stress and Immunity, 2nd Edition

Homeostasis within the immune system is largely dependent on cytokines, the chemical messengers between immune cells. These diverse groups of proteins may be regarded as hormones of the immune system that play crucial roles in regulating immune and inflammatory responses. Pro-inflammatory cytokines, released during an immune response and inflammation activate the central components of the […]

Neurobiology of Cytokines – Part A and B

The term ‘cytokine’ originates from the combination of the Greek ‘cyto’, meaning cell, and ‘kinos’ meaning movement. Cytokines are proteins that aid cell to cell communication, typically in immune responses, exerting important regulatory functions in both innate and adaptive immune responses, and the traffic of immune cells towards sites of inflammation, infection and trauma. The […]
