Abstract

The presence of proinflammatory cytokines in normal central nervous system (CNS) tissues remains an area of controversy (1). Several cytokines have been demonstrated in the normal CNS, and among them, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α, interleukin-1 (IL-1), transforming growth factor (TGF)-β, and macrophage migration inhibitory factor (MIF) have been studied in detail. The functions of TNF-α, IL-1, and TGF-β in the context of neuroinflammation have been described in detail elsewhere in this chapter; therefore, in this section, we will discuss only the potential roles these cytokines have in CNS development and physiological functions.
