Research examines the roles of cytokines during SARS-CoV-2 infection in rhesus macaques

In a recent study posted to the bioRxiv* preprint server, researchers in the United States assessed the role of two cytokines, interferon-gamma (IFN-γ) and interleukin-10 (IL-10), in regulating immune cell responses and inflammation early during severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) infection in rhesus macaques.
