Pro-inflammatory--anti-inflammatory cytokine dynamics mediated by cytokine-receptor dynamics in monocytes.

Abstract

Many of the major human diseases, both infectious (septic shock syndromes) and idiopathic (for example, rheumatoid arthritis), are driven by the production of the pro-inflammatory cytokines interleukin-1 (IL-1) and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) produced by monocytes and macrophages. These key pro-inflammatory cytokines can, in turn, stimulate the… (More)
