Cytokine regulation of T-cell function: potential for therapeutic intervention.
CD4+ T cells, via the cytokines that they produce, play a pivotal role in the induction and regulation of cell-mediated and humoral immunity. Recently it has become clear that the CD4+ T-cell population is heterogeneous and that distinct CD4+ T-cell subsets, defined by their cytokine repertoire, regulate cell-mediated and humoral immune responses. Protective responses to pathogens are dependent on activation of the appropriate TH subset accompanied by its characteristic set of immune effector...Expand abstract
