Cytokine Effector Functions in Tissues discusses the cytokines networks in the context of the specific-tissue environment. It is an up-to-date collection of articles that addresses the specific issue of how the cytokines are able to condition tissue specific homeostasis. The book helps the reader understand how cytokines network inside the tissues and highlights whether tissue-protection or exacerbation will be finally controlled. It describes the cytokines detected and regulated in different tissues, such as the brain, lungs, spleen, liver, pancreas and intestine, also addressing the issue of timing in specific cell types.
- Categorizes the cytokines based primarily on tissue and target cells
- Emphasizes different roles and outcomes observed during innate and adaptive response
- Represents a rapid guide to cytokines in health and disease in tissue and organ context
- Presents a different view on how known mediators may work if analyzed in a different perspective, determining the final outcome on tissue-specific target cells
Researchers in immunology, cytokines research, molecular biology, genetics, biochemistry, genome-wide association studies, pathobiology, diagnostic and clinical applications of all known interleukins, hematopoietic factors, growth factors, cytotoxins, interferons, new cytokines, and chemokines

Maria Foti is Assistant Professor at the University of Milano-Bicocca. She is an internationally recognized immunologist/molecular biologist with experience in both academic science and biotechnology. She has worked for several years in the field of molecular immunology and cell biology of Dendritic Cells. She studied the molecular events associated with Dendritic cell early responses, suggesting the role of Dendritic Cells as the key players in the innate immune responses. Dr. Foti's lab has a focus on cytokine research including the role of cytokines produced by Dendritic cells in response to pathogens. She has been also involved in projects for the selection of biomarkers using the microarray technology in the field of cancer and Autoimmunity.
