Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is an anti-inflammatory cytokine produced by macrophages and type 2 T helper (Th2) cells. IL-10 inhibits the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines such as interferon-γ (IFN-γ), Tumor Necrosis Factor α (TNF-α), interleukin-2 (IL-2), interleukin-3 (IL-3), interleukin-4 (IL-4), and Granulocyte-Macrophage Colony-Stimulating Factor (GM-CSF), made by macrophages and regulatory T cells. IL-10 also suppresses antigen presentation on antigen presenting cells, and enhances the survival, proliferation, and antibody production of B cells.
