Cytokines and Diabetes Research

Description

Cytokines are small soluble proteins secreted by immune system cells and other cells and are part of an intercellular communication system responsible for immune response. These proteins play their role by binding specific cell receptors that either induce or inhibit cytokine-regulated genes. Cytokines are involved in nearly every facet of immunity, inflammation, and development of many human diseases.

This special issue will focus on the recent or existing developments of the application of cytokines in the therapy of diabetes. A number of cytokines, such as fibroblast growth factor (FGF), tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin (IL), growth factor (GF), interferon (IFN), and chemokine, have been demonstrated to play an important role in type I or type II diabetes. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Clinical application of cytokines in diabetic therapeutics
  • Relations of cytokines with the processes of type I or type II diabetes
  • The role of growth factors in the recovery of diabetic ulcer
  • Inflammation and diabetic retinopathy
  • Association of cytokines with diabetic peripheral neuropathy
  • Cytokines and therapy of diabetic neuropathy
