Cytokines are key soluble mediators enabling cell–cell communication between immune cells, but also the crosstalk between our damaged tissue cells and the immune system. Several cytokines or cytokine receptors have been targeted successfully in inflammation and autoimmune diseases with classical antibodies, while the oncology field has focused on administering some naked cytokines. The field of cytokine-targeting antibodies and immuno-cytokines has experienced a growing renewed interest with the discovery and characterization of new cytokines, the introduction of engineered cytokines, multispecific antibodies, and antibody fusion proteins providing novel or redirected mechanisms of action, differentiated functions, and novel therapeutic opportunities.
This Special Issue of Antibodies aims to collect original manuscripts and reviews covering the progress in the growing field of cytokine-targeting antibodies as well as immunocytokines with potential therapeutic application in oncology, inflammation, and autoimmune or infectious diseases.
