Abstract The scope of cytokine biology is fascinating with widespread applications anticipated in many areas of medical science. We have emphasized the fundamental roles that cytokines play in the control of normal immunological functions, defence mechanisms and normal cell growth, and how major surgery and trauma can affect these processes. It remains to be determined if morbidity and mortality may be improved after major illness and surgery by altering cytokine production and function.
