The effect of recombinant interleukin-4 on the synthesis of immunoglobulins is studied in a culture of mononuclear cells isolated from peripheral blood of healthy donors and patients with hay fever. It is shown that interleukin-4 stimulates production of IgE in cells of healthy donors, but not of hay fever patients, and does not affect the synthesis of other isotypes in either group. At the same time, increased cell proliferation under the influence of interleukin-4 was observed in cultured cells of both healthy donors and patients.
