Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is a key cytokine produced by a multitude of immune effector cells and possesses distinct regulatory effects on immune functioning in the skin. In this article we report the current understanding of the immunobiology of IL-10 and identify the role of IL-10 in cutaneous infection as well as in autoimmune and neoplastic processes. We reviewed the literature to examine the function of IL-10 in different cutaneous disorders. IL-10 can influence and potentially treat T1/T2 differentiation, antigen-presenting cell functioning, antigen-presenting cell-mediated T-cell activation, and T-cell, B-cell, and mast cell growth and differentiation that is aberrant in various disease processes. The literature consensus is that the multitude of effects of IL-10 contribute to the pathogenesis of different skin disorders. In certain circumstances IL-10 could represent novel therapeutic approaches to treating cutaneous diseases.

Abstract

Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is a key cytokine produced by a multitude of immune effector cells and possesses distinct regulatory effects on immune functioning in the skin. In this article we report the current understanding of the immunobiology of IL-10 and identify the role of IL-10 in cutaneous infection as well as in autoimmune and neoplastic processes. We reviewed the literature to examine the function of IL-10 in different cutaneous disorders. IL-10 can influence and potentially treat T1/T2 differentiation, antigen-presenting cell functioning, antigen-presenting cell-mediated T-cell activation, and T-cell, B-cell, and mast cell growth and differentiation that is aberrant in various disease processes. The literature consensus is that the multitude of effects of IL-10 contribute to the pathogenesis of different skin disorders. In certain circumstances IL-10 could represent novel therapeutic approaches to treating cutaneous diseases.
