Editorial Reviews

"This is a useful book...Investigators in the area will welcome this... this second edition is worthwhile." -Eugene A. Davidson for DOODY'S (2003)Review of Previous Edition:"It is organized in a logical, easy-to-use manner...it would be of interest to those working within the field, who may need a rapid answer to a specific query...as well as to those...who may wish to know more about cytokines in general." - Immunology Today"The authors have collected essential information on most of the cloned cytokines from a wide variety of sources and collated it in a fashion that allows easy access to large amounts of data. It will provide a useful introduction to newcomers to the field, and act as an essential reference source for cytokine biologists." - Molecular Medicine Today
