Antibodies for Inflammatory Disease

  • Peter C. Taylor
Part of the Methods in Molecular Medicine book series (MIMM, volume 40)


Cytokines are small proteins and major mediators of local intercellular communication required for an integrated response to a variety of stimuli in immune and inflammatory responses. By binding their cognate receptors on target cells, these short-lived molecules play a role in many important biological processes, including cell proliferation, activation, death, and differentiation. During an inflammatory response many cytokines are synthesized by a wide range of cell types, including leukocytes and fibroblasts. Some cytokines are proinflammatory, such as interleukin-1 (IL-1) and tumor necrosis factor a (TNF-α); others, such as interleukin-10 (IL-10) and transforming growth factor β(TGF-β), exert predominantly anti-inflammatory effects. However, it is now understood that many cytokines, for example, interferon-γ (IFN-γ), with chiefly proinflammatory activity, can also in some instances have anti-inflammatory properties. Similarly, cytokines with predominantly anti-inflammatory activity, such as IL-10 and TGF-β may also exhibit proinflammatory properties and therefore have pathogenic potential. Paracrine or autocrine pathways involving cytokines with either pro- or anti-inflammatory activity can lead to reverberating networks determining whether chronic inflammation results.
