Viruses and Glucocorticoids ‘Cooperate’ to Induce Interleukin-10 Production: Implications for Stress-Induced Immunosuppression and Exacerbations of Asthma

A study published in the May 2013 issue of PLoS One may indicate a novel, unrecognized interaction between viruses and the glucocorticoid (GC)-signaling system that results in the induction of interleukin (IL)-10 production by dendritic cells (DCs). In this report, Sinnie Ng and colleagues from the National Institutes of Child Health and Human Development, and […]
