Background

Human interleukin-13 (IL-13) is secreted by a variety of immune cells as a 15.8 kDa, glycosylated monomeric cytokine involved in a number of biological processes. It stimulates B-cell proliferation, macrophage activation, immunoglobulin production, protein secretion, and phosphorylation of Stat6 protein. IL-13 is a central regulator of IgE synthesis, mucus hypersecretion and a mediator of allergic inflammation. It is involved in a number of disorders including asthma, COPD, allergic rhinitis, atopic dermatitis, inflammatory bowel disease, and colorectal cancer (1,2). Salivary IL-13 levels may reflect those observed in the airways in diseases like asthma and COPD.
