Chemokine-based immunotherpaies

Controlled expression of chemokines could be used to direct select immune cells to the microenvironment of diseased or injured tissues. Since different chemokines will recruit particular immune cells based on the chemokine receptors those cells express, it may be possible to add or induce the expression of specific chemokines at local sites of disease or injury to recruit “good” or desired immune cells to that location, and to limit the presence of immune cells that may exacerbate the problem.
