The role of lL-4, IL-lO, and TNF-a in the immune suppression induced by ultraviolet radiation


Cytokines produced by keratinocytes play an essential role in the induction of immune suppression following ultraviolet (UV) exposure. Using antibodies specific for either interleukin-lO (IL-b) or tumor necrosis factor a (TNF-a), we present evidence indicating that IL-b suppresses delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) but not contact hypersensitivity (CHS… (More)
