Human body is affected by direct entry of pathogen and its collateral damage of immune response by pathogen. Cytokines are specific type of proteins which are secreted by the immune system. It encodes the molecules which help in building immunity, inflammation and hematopoiesis. Cytokines are important for stimulating the immune system to fight a foreign pathogen or attack tumors. Effects include reduction of an immune response, for example interferon beta reduction of neuron inflammation in patients with multiple sclerosis. It affects the growth of all blood cells and other cells that help the body’s immune and inflammation response. There is a specific type of cytokine named as chemokine.
Keywords: Collateral, hematopoiesis, encoding, cytokine, inflammation, glycoprotein
