What are the common cytokines

Cytokines can be classified into several categories, including growth factors, chemokines, apoptotic factors, mediators of inflammation, and so on. Common cytokines include interleukin, tumor necrosis factor, interferon, chemokines and so on.

 

What diseases are cytokines associated with?

Changes in cytokines are associated with a variety of diseases, and the following common disease models are associated with them:

  • Inflammatory disease: Cytokines play an important role in the inflammatory response. Excessive or abnormal inflammatory response is associated with a variety of inflammatory diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases (such as Crohn's disease and ulcerative colitis), psoriasis, and so on. In these diseases, abnormal production and regulation of cytokines, such as TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, etc., lead to excessive activation of immune cells and excessive release of inflammatory mediators.

 

  • Autoimmunity disease: Autoimmune diseases are diseases in which the immune system mistakenly attacks its own tissues and organs. A variety of autoimmune diseases are related to abnormal production and function of cytokines, such as systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, multiple sclerosis and so on. Excessive production or abnormal regulation of certain cytokines, such as IL-2, IL-4, IL-10, IL-12, IL-17A, TNF-α, TGF-β1 and IFN-γ, can trigger autoimmune responses, leading to inflammation and tissue damage. Details are as follow:

Systemic lupus Erythematosus: IL-6, IL-10, IFN-γ and other cytokines are associated with inflammatory response, autoantibody production and organ damage.

Rheumatoid arthritis: TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6 and other cytokines are involved in the process of synovial inflammation and joint destruction.

Multiple Sclerosis: IL-2IL-4IL-10IFN-γ and other cytokines are associated with autoimmune responses and nerve damage.

 

  • Tumor: Cytokines play an important role in the occurrence, growth and metastasis of tumors. Certain cytokines can promote tumor cell proliferation, angiogenesis, and infiltration, and inhibit tumor recognition and clearance by the immune system. Such as TNF-α, IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8, TGF-β1, GM-CSF and IFN-γ are closely related to the development and prognosis of tumors. Details are as follow:

 

  • Infectious disease: In the process of infection, cytokines are involved in the regulation of immune response and inflammatory response to combat pathogen invasion. In some infectious diseases, such as severe infection and sepsis, excessive production of cytokines such as TNF-α, IL-1β and IL-6 can lead to systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS) and organ failure.
