Detection of cytokines at the site of tuberculin-induced delayed-type hypersensitivity in man.
Cytokines are chiefly local mediators which play an important role in the regulation of the cell-cell interactions which may be involved in the development of the delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) reaction. Using immunohistochemical techniques, the presence of IL-1 alpha, IL-1 beta, IL-6, interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma) and tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) in the skin in tuberculin-purified protein derivative (PPD)-induced DTH reactions was investigated in six normal individuals.
