Cytokine Release Syndrome (CRS)
Cytokine Release Syndrome (CRS) Market

Cytokine Release Syndrome (CRS) is an acute systemic inflammatory syndrome, which is characterized by fever and multiple organ dysfunction that is associated with chimeric antigen receptor (CAR)-T cell therapy, therapeutic antibodies, and haploidentical allogeneic transplantation.

Even though cytokines act to direct immune response, the higher levels of cytokines with increased inflammation can be harmful as they interfere with several body functions. In severe cases, CRS can cause organ failure in heart, lung, kidney, liver, and brain function that may even lead to death. 

The main cytokines implicated in the pathogenesis of CRS include interleukin-6 (IL-6), IL-10, tumour necrosis factor (TNF), IL-1, IL-2, IL-8, interferon (IFN)-γ, monocyte chemoattractant protein 1 (MCP-1) and granulocyte-macrophage colony-stimulating factor (GM-CSF) and others. CRS clinically manifests when large numbers of lymphocytes (B cells, T cells, and/or natural killer cells) and/or myeloid cells (macrophages, dendritic cells, and monocytes) become activated and release inflammatory cytokines.
