Reviews

"...it is an excellent general reference book that could (and should) be included in any departmental library. The information is each chapter is comprehensive and the bibliography (in general) is excellent... Each chapter covers general aspects of each cytokine, from the level of the gene to clinical relevance, and includes cDNA sequences to three-dimensional structures.... it makes easy reading for a reference book." --TRENDS IN PHARMACOLOGICAL SCIENCES
