Abstract

Cytokines are cell signalling proteins that mediate a number of different physiological responses. They are also biomarkers for inflammatory conditions and potential diagnostic references for diseases. Until recently, simultaneous quantification of cytokine profiles had not been possible. Now however, fluorescent microsphere immunoassays (FMIA) are able to measure multiple cytokines in a single sample. The following pro-inflammatory and anti inflammatory cytokines were quantified in equine plasma and serum samples: Interleukin (IL)-2, IL-4, IL-6, IL-10, Interferon (IFN)-γ, Tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α.
