    Interleukin-18 (IL-18) is a new inflammatory cytokine sharing biological functions with IL-12. The human IL-18 receptor (IL-18R) was recently identified and was found to be expressed on normal peripheral blood lymphocytes. To further characterize IL-18R, we analyzed IL-18R expression using a...
