    Because interleukin (IL)-10 is an immunoregulatory cytokine that is produced by keratinocytes exposed to UVB radiation (UVR), we determined whether IL-10 participates in either failed contact hypersensitivity (CH) induction or tolerance after acute, low-dose UVR. Murine recombinant IL-10 (200...

    The induction of systemic immunosuppression following ultraviolet B radiation exposure has been linked with the release of inflammatory and immunomodulatory mediators by cells of the epidermis and dermis. Nerve growth factor has not previously been linked with ultraviolet-B-induced...

    Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is known to play a major role in suppressing immune and inflammatory responses by inhibiting the production of proinflammatory cytokines. Therefore, we hypothesized that IL-10 might be capable of suppressing allergic contact hypersensitivity. BALB/c mice were sensitized on...

    Interleukin (IL) 10 is a recently discovered cytokine, originally isolated from T-helper 2 (Th2) cells, which inhibits cytokine production of T-helper 1 (Th1) cells. Because Th1 cells appear to be of importance during the contact hypersensitivity reaction (CHS)we hypothesized that IL-10 might...

    Interleukin-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra), a naturally occurring inhibitor of interleukin-1 (IL-1), blocks IL-1 binding to its receptors but has no agonistic activity. IL-1 Is thought to play an important role in contact hypersensitivity (CHS), although the effects of exogenously administered...

    The administration of pyrogenic doses of interleukin 1 (IL-1) to normal mice before contact sensitization with dinitrofluorobenzene (DNFB) resulted in a significant reduction in the intensity of the elicited contact hypersensitivity (CH) responses.

    Severe sepsis is a syndrome estimated to occur in 3 patients out of every 1000 admitted to the hospital. The overall mortality rate for severe sepsis is 30-50%. Severe sepsis is a clinical response to infection mediated by the release of proinflammatory cytokines, including interleukin (IL)-1,...
