abstract

  • Interleukin-23 and IL-12 share a common p40 subunit and no inhibition of IL-12 was apparent. It appeared that a component of mid-trimester amniotic fluid specifically interacts with the p19 subunit unique to IL-23. Mid-trimester amniotic fluid reactivity with IL-23 may be a mechanism to limit intra-amniotic neutrophil-derived inflammation.
