Abstract

Recent studies have identified interleukin 10 as a differentiation factor for a novel subset of immune suppressive regulatory T cells. Here, Hervé Groux and Fiona Powrie discuss the role that these cells play in the regulation of immune responses to enteric antigens and suggest that a deficiency in these cells might be involved in the pathogenesis of inflammatory bowel disease.
