Immunological tug of war between IL-12 and IL-23

Experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) is an animal model of human multiple sclerosis. Microglia and macrophages that reside within the central nervous system (CNS) are a source of the inflammatory cytokines IL-23 and IL-12. Until recently it was considered that IL-12 was a major mediator in the development of EAE, however within the last year it has been reported that IL-23 and not IL-12 is essential in the development of EAE. Burkhard Becher and colleagues from the University of Zurich, Switzerland, and Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, USA, now show that the p40 subunit, shared by both IL-12 and IL-23, plays a critical role in maintaining encephalitogenicity during the course of this disease.
