The inflammatory cytokine IL-22 promotes murine gliomas via proliferation.

Interleukin (IL)-22 is newly identified proinflammatory cytokine involved in the T helper (Th)17 and Th22 response. However, the possible role of IL-22 in glioma remains uncertain. The results of the present study demonstrated higher expression levels of IL-22 and the receptor IL-22BP in the brain of GL261 glioma-inoculation mice, suggesting the regulatory… (More)
