Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is an important suppressor of immune responses.1-3 In vitro studies indicate that IL-10 directly inhibits IL-2 and IL-5 production by TH1 and TH2 cells. IL-10 acts as an immunosuppressor of antigen presenting cells (APC). IL-10 suppresses epidermal Langerhans cell APC function, monocyte chemokines expression, and the bactericidal responses of macrophages. A number of studies suggest that IL-10 plays a role in controlling inflammation, autoimmunity, and angiogenesis.
No special preparation is needed for IL-10. Inform your doctor if you are on any medications or have any underlying medical conditions or allergies before undergoing IL-10. Your doctor depending on your condition will give specific instructions.
