Interleukins (ILs) were the first expressed by leukocytes that aid in the communication between cells. There have been extensive studies on various types of IL, and it was found that they help in motility, cell growth, and differentiation. They have been grouped into four major groups based upon their structural features. This article explores the characteristics of various IL where studies on each type and its associated autoimmune diseases have been reviewed. This article also highlights on the recent advances and applications in the field.
