Interferons and Other Regulatory Cytokines

Front Cover
Wiley, Jan 1, 1988 - Cytokines - 448 pages
This text provides a presentation of the state-of-knowledge of interferons (IFNs) providing a synthetic overview of the role and significance of IFNs in health and disease. Treatment is placed in a broad biological context including much up-to-date background information on the different systems (eg oncogenes or T cell function) that are under the influence of IFNs. This approach makes the book accessible to those not directly involved in IFN research. Coverage also includes other cytokines, such as tumor necrosis factor alpha and beta, and the various interleukins.
