IL-5 is generally regarded as a Th2 cytokine involved in eosinophil maturation and function and in B cell growth and antibody production, but without any well-established effects on T cells. Early reports suggested that IL-5 could stimulate the production of cytotoxic T lymphocytes (CTL) in vitro, but no evidence has been obtained to date for such a role in studies with IL-deficient (IL-5(-/-)) mice.
