Cytokines are messenger substances used by leukocytes for cell-to-cell communication within the psychoneuroendocrine network; they function as effectors, mediators, and immunomodulators. Subclasses of cytokine include interleukins, interferons, tumor necrosis factors, and various growth factors. Their diverse tasks primarily include inflammatory and immunoregulatory processes, as well as control of blood formation in the bone marrow.
