Dr. Fang has been studying the direct role of cytokines on tumor growth for a decade. Many cytokines such as IL-9, IL-32, IL-33, IL-35 and IL-41 have been found to influence the growth of tumor cells. In this presentation, he will talk about the role of IL-35 in growth of pancreatic cancer cells. This study has been published in Cytokine, an official journal of the International Cytokine & Interferon Society.
