Interleukin-10 is one of a number of polypeptides known collectively as interleukins. It regulates the differentiation and proliferation of several immune cells including T-cells and Bcells. It is postulated that it has immunostimulant as well as immunosuppressive properties; it also has anti-inflammatory actions. Interleukin-10 is under investigation for inflammatory bowel disease, malignant neoplasms, skin disorders including psoriasis and reduction of scarring, rheumatoid arthritis, hepatitis C, and organ transplantation. Ilodecakin is a recombinant form of interleukin-10 under investigation.
