The number of cytokines and related growth factors has increased dramatically in recent years to several dozen. Moreover, the names of the cytokines are generally uninformative of biological function, or are now recognized as misleading as new and unexpected activities are discovered in new bioassays. This text provides a succinct reference manual for all known cytokines, growth factors, interleukins and lymphokines as well as their receptors.

"For the most part the facts and principles set forth are not likely to change. This attests, in part, to the diligence of Nicola and the panel of experts he has enlisted to lay out the information. It also says something about the field as a whole, which seems at last to have reached a point of maturity. . . . The enduring quality of this Guidebook owes much to the stylistic consistency and thoroughness of the individual entries. . . . This book meets an obvious need. Many cytokine workers immediately find themselves out of their depth when the conversation (or the impulse of research) turns to a factor with which they have no hands-on experience. For them the Guidebook sets forth facts of a solid character that are not likely to change in the near term. This makes the book extremely attractive and well worth buying." --cience
