Interleukins (IL)

Interleukins (ILs) are biologically active mediators of inflammation and immune response that belong to cytokine family. Around 40 different ILs have been identified so far and are multifaceted with roles in multiple signaling pathways, exhibit diverse roles in immune regulation and cellular networks and target numerous proteins that regulate biological responses. Essential functions of ILs include stimulation of inflammation and immune responses as defence against pathogens. Identification of IL antagonists in as treatment option for autoimmune disorders, cancer and inflammatory disorders is being actively pursued. Antibody and receptor antagonists of interleukins are showing promising results in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis and irritable bowel syndrome.
