IL-12: a key cytokine in immune regulation

Immunol Today. 1996 May;17(5):214-7. doi: 10.1016/0167-5699(96)30011-x.


It is now apparent that interleukin 12 (IL-12) is of central significance in the regulation of immune responses. At a recent meeting, immunologists from preclinical and clinical backgrounds gathered to discuss basic concepts in IL-12 biology, and the potential of IL-12 as a target for immunointervention.
