What is the cytokine you will be injecting?  The dose and route of 
transfer for biological effects varies among cytokines and may need 
to be assessed by a preliminary experiment.  Do you have enough 
cytokine to perform multiple experiments or a dose response?  What 
effect are you trying to observe and how will you assess the in 
vivo effect of cytokine administration?  What is the experience of 
other labs using your cytokine and system?
