Synopsis: 
Interleukin 10 (IL-10) is a cytokine which has anti-inflammatory characteristics. In this study, we evaluated whether IL-10 levels increase when hepatitis B virus DNA levels increase. High levels of IL-10 in chronic hepatitis B patients indicate that it may be the cause of ineffective immune response. Decreasing IL-10 levels by using various methods may have important contributions in progression and treatment of the disease.

ABSTRACT

Objective: One of the most important factors playing a role in chronic hepatitis B pathogenesis is cytokine release and one of the cytokines with anti-inflammatory characteristic is interleukin-10 (IL-10). The aim of the present study is to examine IL-10 levels in patients with chronic hepatitis B.
