Luke O'Neill and Andrew Bowie bring together a collection of standard and advanced methods for measuring these powerful agents. Their readily reproducible techniques range from the assay of interleukin protein and mRNA-using ELISA, FACS, and RT-PCR-to the study of interleukin signal transduction. Newer techniques are also covered, including the analysis of interleukin gene polymorphisms and the use of cDNA microarrays. Many of the assays are geared to specific pathologies, including breast cancer, depression, psoriasis, Grave's disease, migraine, and myocardial infarction. Comprehensive and highly practical, Interleukin Protocols offers biomedical investigators a stellar collection of all the major techniques needed to analyze the role of interleukins in disease, to improve diagnosis, and to foster the rapid emergence of new and more powerful therapeutics.

Editorial Reviews

"this volume offers protocols for measurement of various interleukins. Most are of sufficient detail so as to serve as a laboratory guide for investigators. Investigators with a specific interest in analyzing a given interleukin will find this volume helpful. "-Doody's Health Sciences Book Review Journal"Comprehensive and highly practical, Interleukin Protocols offers biomedical investigators a stellar collection of all the major techniques needed to analyze the role of interleukins in disease, to improve diagnosis, and to foster the rapid emergence of new and more powerful therapeutics." - Journal of Investigational Allergology and Clinical immunology"A variety of techniques is represented in 36 chapters which are written in a concise, uniform format b y authors who obviously have a lot of hands-on experience with the methods covered...If you are working in this area, put this book on a shelf in the lab and it will not be just recently started graduate students who will gracefully turn to it. - Chembiochem"The protocols that are described in the book are user friendly, in the sense that they are not only well detailed and easy to follow but also reliable. The researchers that are naive in the field will find a lot of useful information in the book whereas the experienced ones will be able to use the book as a source of additional information on the methods already in use. A must therefore for the psychoneuroendocrinologist with a working interest in the relationships between the (neuroendocrine) brain and the immune system." -Psychoneuroendocriniology
