Interleukin-9 promotes eosinophilic rejection of mouse heart allografts.


BACKGROUND Eosinophils participate in allograft rejection when donor-reactive helper T lymphocytes are T-helper type 2 (Th2)-biased. Whereas the involvement of interleukin (IL)-4 and IL-5 in these forms of rejection is well established, the role of IL-9, another Th2-type cytokine promoting eosinophilia, has not been determined.
