International Journal of COPD has published the review “Cytokine inhibition in the treatment of COPD”.
As corresponding author Professor Chung says, “This review examines the importance of cytokines in many of the pathobiological processes of COPD and analyses the disease-modifying potential for these cytokines as targets for future treatments of COPD.”
Professor Chung continues, “Currently, there are no cytokine-targeted therapies, although there are increasing efforts to do so. The most promising candidates are discussed.”
As Dr Richard Russell, Editor-in-Chief, explains, “This is a very thorough review of the current knowledge base around cytokines in COPD. It will attract a wide audience from a multidisciplinary field.”
