Cytokines are proteins secreted by immune and inflammatory cell populations, as well as growth factors, oncogenes, chemokines, and other soluble factors, which affect growth, differentiation, and viability of cells. Cytokines can either enhance or inhibit the function of a ligand, and this enhancing or inhibiting mechanism provides clues in the development of treatment strategies in which too little or too much of a cytokine is contributing to disease. Edited by a respected authority in reproductive immunology, with contributions from leading researchers, this important work details the latest in cytokine research, outlining the role they play in causing and preventing disease in reproduction. Each of its thirteen chapters focuses on a different primary sex organ (testes, ovaries, etc.), stage of pregnancy (preterm, early pregnancy, etc.), or disease (endometriosis, cancer).
