Interaction Information:

Comment Administration of IL-4 enhances bacterial clearance from the lungs of wild-type mice and decreases mortality after infection. The protective effects of IL-4 may be related to its ability to modulate leukocyte function. IL-4 enhances expression of complement receptors CR1, CR3, and CR4 and increases complement-dependent phagocytosis.
