interleukin-10

[‚in·tər¦lük ′ten]
(immunology)
An immunoregulatory cytokine produced by a subset of helper T cells as well as by B lymphocytes and some cells of the uterus during pregnancy, it inhibits secretion (and function) of cytokine by macrophages and the second population of helper T cells called Th1. Abbreviated IL-10.

The aim of this study was: 1) to assess the cellular expression of cytokines Th1 (Interleukin-2: IL-2) and Th2 (Interleukin-10: IL-10) in CIN 1, CIN 2 and CIN 3 lesions, normal tissues adjacent to the lesions and normal cervical tissues, and 2) to determine its association with the cellular expression of IL-2 receptor (IL-2R), cytokine serum concentration and human papillomavirus (HPV) infection.
