Are leukotrienes cytokines?

Are leukotrienes produced via the lipoxygenase pathway the same 
as any or all of the cytokines (interleukins, iterferons, TNFs, TGFs)? for 
example, I vaguely remember LTB4 being referred to by another name but can't 
seem to track it down.

I'd bbe interested in knowing the prior names for all the cytokines we know 
today. Can anyone recommend a good source?
