Anti-CD3, TCR ligation, PMA, calcium ionophore, Con A, IL-2, IL-18, FcsRI cross-linking

Monocytes, macrophages, B cells, T cells, hematopoietic progenitors

Suppresses activation- and en do toxin-induced cytokine, chemokine, and tissue factor production by monocytes and macrophages; down-regulates macrophage activity; induces monocyte differentiation; induces B cell proliferation, differentiation, Ig production, and isotype switching; induces CD23/CD2 and class II expression on B cells; induces chemotaxis of T cells; enhances expression of IL-1RA; decrease nitric oxide production; suppresses the pyrogenic effects of IL-1 and or TNF-a; inhibits HIV-1 infectivity in human macrophages; increases LAK activity; has anti-tumor effects

Enhances proliferation of activated B cells/B cell subsets; inhibits immunoglobulin synthesis

Decreased IL-5 and IgE production; reduced eosinophil activity; increased IFN-y; decreased Th2 development; decreased nematode resistance

Higher levels associated with asthma; low levels occur with osteoarthritis; reduces endotoxin shock and arthritis in animal models; chimeric IL-13 and Pseudomonas exotoxin A results in cytotolysis of adenocarcinomas and gliomas; chimeric IL-13 and Pseudomonas exotoxin results in cytolysis of Kaposi's sarcomas; potential antitumor agent; antagonists may be used to block allergy and asthma

Potential use as adjuvant in combination with other biological response modifiers
