Abstract : Four hundred and seven academic, government and industrial scientists from nineteen countries attended the International Workshop Monokines and Other Non-Lymphocytic Cytokines held at the Intercontinental Hotel, Hilton Head, SC, on 6-10 December 1987. The fifty-three oral and 180 poster presentations dealt with the effects, mechanisms of action, physical properties, regulation and assay of many of the cytokines which affect the function of virtually every cell, tissue and organ system. Summaries of the current state of our knowledge of transforming growth factor beta, tumor necrosis factor, interferon beta 2 and growth factors in hematopoiesis were given.
