Cytokines are a large group of small signaling molecules that function extensively in cellular communication. Cytokines are most often associated with various immune modulating molecules that include interleukins, chemokines, and interferons, but can also include other molecules as well. Their use in disease diagnosis and treatment has proven very beneficial over the past number of years as their use as biomarkers has been adopted as a means to understanding disease and therapies. They have expanded into more disease relevant, specialized panels for a more accurate assessment of various diseases that include cardiovascular disease, asthma, inflammation, cancer, diabetes, and rheumatoid arthritis.
This Cytokine Atlas Knowledge Center was developed as resource to provide greater understanding of the various cytokines and their roles in diseases and various cell types.
