Interleukin-4 and interleukin-10 synergize to inhibit cell-mediated immunity in vivo.
The lack of cell-mediated (Th1-like) immunity that is often associated with strong humoral immune responses is thought to be due in part to the inhibition of Th1 effector function by the Th2-derived cytokine interleukin-10 (IL-10). This hypothesis, however, is based entirely on results from in vitro studies, wherein IL-10 has been shown to inhibit Th1 cytokine synthesis. In this study we have compared the regulatory effects of both IL-4 and IL-10 on the development of a more complex Th1 effec...Expand abstract
