Cytokines are small secreted proteins released by cells have a specific effect on the interactions and communications between cells. Cytokine is a general name; other names include lymphokine cytokines made by lymphocytes , monokine cytokines made by monocytes , chemokine cytokines with chemotactic activities , and interleukin cytokines made by one leukocyte and acting on other leukocytes. Cytokines may act on the cells that secrete them autocrine action , on nearby cells paracrine action , or in some instances on distant cells endocrine action. There are both pro-inflammatory cytokines and anti-inflammatory cytokines. Inflammatory responses in the peripheral and central nervous systems play key roles in the development and persistence of many pathological pain states [ 1 ]. It is common for different cell types to secrete the same cytokine or for a single cytokine to act on several different cell types pleiotropy.

In our field studies, we typically draw blood quite a bit. Could you give us some guidance on handling those samples, how fast we have to get it out of the glass, suggested temperature, and surely regarding shipping samples.

Cytokines are small proteins, and they are relatively susceptible to proteolysis. They have relatively short half lives. In order to store cytokines themselves for shipment, if you are specifically looking for plasma cytokines, I think that the samples would have to be frozen fairly quickly. They are stable once frozen. In getting the cells separated from the plasma, are there guidelines?

In terms of what things to measure, there are two things we can look at. We can look at the capability of the cells to produce cytokines or we can look at a snapshot of what cytokines are already there. If you want to deal with the cells the way Tim Kramer is dealing with the cells, then I think it is fairly important to keep the cells in the milieu where they are happy which is not too cold because cold inhibits the ability of the cells to recover their cytokine production and to get them to the laboratory as quickly as possible.

We have a lot of experience with shipping samples across the country, and if they are shipped across the country in the winter, even in those insulated Styrofoam Federal Express mailers, the cells lose almost all the biological activity when they get cold.

I don't know. It is known that the gut makes, or the enterocyte makes, IL We don't think they are present in the lumen, but there is little data to address this point. We fed cytokines to mice as an adjuvant for an oral vaccine study, and found that fed cytokines will increase immune response in a cytokine-appropriate way. So, you can have both. You can have enterocytes making cytokines and also cytokine absorption present.

One of the things in my manuscript that I didn't have time to talk about involves the intervention with cytokines; you have to remember that the cytokines are designed to be intercellular messengers. Most of the cytokines work at very short distances and for very short times.

When cytokines are administered in large amounts in an adjuvant-type setting, the side effects of those cytokines are often very severe. We have a lot of experience with using cytokine therapy in cancer patients, and there are very major problems with administering nonphysiological or large amounts of cytokines, and that is something that will have to be overcome. The delivery problem is something that needs much more study.

I am thinking about the complexity of the issue of cytokines in the gut. In model systems using cultured human intestinal epithelial cells in regions where the membrane forms very nice tight junctions, they will make IL-8, but it is almost all at the basal side. IL-8 appears to have a very important physiological effect as a chemokine to attract neutrophils. The neutrophil response actually goes through the monolayer of epithelial cells and will facilitate the transfer of bacteria from the apical side to the luminal side.

In shigellosis, the cytokine cascade including IL-8 and IL-1 in particular, is part of the pathogenesis of the disease. The inflammatory response of those cytokines is essential for creating the disease. So, we have heard about double-edged swords.

Clearly at the level of the gut in intestinal disease, that is one of the critical infectious diseases in the military for fighting capacity. We have got to be very careful about understanding what happens when you put cytokines on the surface or just below the gut surface. And depending on cytokine status, the balance of cytokines, especially the Th1-Th2 balance, may affect the outcome of the disease process depending on the pathogen.

There is a lot of study in parasitology looking at leishmaniasis and other types of parasites where the Th1-Th2 cytokine balance, determines the outcome of the disease. In regard to the use, let us say you are measuring total inflammatory cytokines in response to exertion.

The lab that we have been. Do you have an opinion on which is better? We have done a lot of measurements both ways. Plasma is usually easier to get and more available.

We haven't had a lot of trouble in measuring cytokines in plasma. So, probably you have to talk to the laboratory and see if they have a problem with standardizing their assays one way, and they don't want to go to the trouble of standardizing them again or not. We haven't found interfering substances. Now, in some of our studies in cancer patients, we have gone to the extent of doing a double molecular filtration to remove everything with a molecular weight of over 50, and everything under a molecular weight of 15, or 10, with centrifugal filters to see if there were inhibitors around that were affecting our results.

The conclusion of that study was that it was not worthwhile to go to the trouble of performing a double molecular filtration. One follow-up question. Immediately after heavy exertion when we take a sample and separate the plasma and try to freeze it within 30 minutes, on doing that we find that IL-6 goes up about sixfold.

Is there anything you can recommend like deliverance timing for freezing, or is 30 minutes okay?
