Abstract Interleukins are biologically active glycoproteins derived primarily from activated lymphocytes and macrophages. Tremendous insight into the biochemical and biological properties of interleukins has been gained with advances in recombinant DNA technology, protein purification, and cell-culture techniques. The biological properties of interleukins include induction of T-lymphocyte activation and proliferation, augmentation of neutrophil, macrophage, and T-lymphocyte cytotoxicity, and promotion of B lymphocyte and multilineage bone marrow stem-cell precursor growth and differentiation. Interleukins may play a role in the pathogenesis of several important diseases. Interleukin therapy is likely to play an important role in the treatment of cancer, infectious diseases, and immunodeficiency syndromes.
