Cytokines 2008 will cover the latest thinking on the role of cytokines in health and disease. Animal as well as human disease models will be addressed.
Some of the topics to be discussed include:
Is cytokine storm good (or bad) for the host?
Which cytokine levels correlate best with morbidity and mortality?
Which cytokine levels correlate best with survival?
Does the correlation depend on the pathogen?
Does it depend on the host's species and/or strain?
What agents are positive immunomodulators (raising cytokine levels)?
Which are negative immunomodulators?
