Reduced interleukin-5 production by peripheral CD4+ T cells in common variable immunodeficiency patients.


We evaluated the capacity of peripheral CD4+ T helper cells in four Common Variable Immunodeficiency (CVI) patients to secrete interleukin-4 (IL-4) and IL-5. While in control CD4+ T cells, stimulated via CD3 and cultured in presence of IL-2 or IL-15, a 10 fold increased production of IL-5 (146 +/- 30; 142 +/- 25 pg/ml) was found, a 4 fold increment of this… (More)
