Inhibition of the induction of contact hypersensitivity by an epithelial cell-derived interleukin-1 inhibitor.

Abstract

Interleukin-1 (IL-1) is the central hormone of acute inflammation. Previous studies have demonstrated that an Interleukin-1 inhibitor (ILS) derived from human gingival epithelial cell cultures abrogates the effect of IL-1 on human Langerhans cells and murine thymocytes in vitro. The present study investigated the effect of ILS on the induction and… (More)
