About the book

Interleukins as a group of cytokines have a pivotal role in the innate and adaptive immune system and the related interactions. Interleukins are categorized into different family members based on their molecular biology, structure and function. Hence, any information regarding these characteristics may help us to know their importance and association with signaling pathways. Moreover, pathogenic microorganisms as the outsiders are able to stimulate the genes of the related interleukins to be turned on or turned off. In contrast to infectious diseases, autoimmune diseases are the results of endogenous stimulators which are in association with some disorders (genetic, environmental or both of them). This process may stimulate the production or prevention of interleukins as protein and glycoprotein molecules that mediate different mechanisms and signaling pathways. As aforementioned, genetic and environmental factors are important predisposing factors in this regard. Among versatile factors, polymorphism is a considerable genetic-environmental factor that is recognized as the cornerstone of abnormalities in immune system activities and functions. However, some kinds of polymorphisms are weak factors to contribute.

Cancers have different reasons, agents, mechanisms and characteristics. According to the type of cancer, different interleukins are contributed with different functions and activities.

All in all, choosing a suitable and effective therapeutics strategies has a direct effect on the result of these disorders.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Sara Debeuc

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
