Interleukins are a group of natural proteins mediating the communication between the cells.They act not only in pathological condutions but under normal condutions of cell growth, differentiation and motility. They also stimulate immune responses. They are produced by the immune system cells and also have functions on developments of T and B Lymphocytes. There are types of interleukins depending on their sources and fınctions. IL-1 (Macrophages, B Cells, Monocytes , dentritic cells), Inflamation production, promotion fever and sepsis. IL-2 (Th-1 cells), response mediate the interactions between the leucocytes, enhance the strength of response. IL-3, Activated T helper cells, mast cells, Natural killer cells, eosinophills IL-4 (Th2 cells, CD4 cell, mast cells, macrophages), regulates antibody production, hematopoesis, T Cell response mediation. IL-6 (B cells, macrophages), mediators of fever and acute phase Although there are fifteen types, immunological functions of most of them are not known yet.
Interpretation: According to the clinical pathology of infection, the clinician will interprete the immunological response and manage the treatment.
