25807634 imbalance of IL-18/IL-18BP ratio in IgA nephropathy especially in patients with arteriolar lesions
25548255 The natural IL-18 inhibitor IL-18BP further regulates IL-18 activity in the extracellular environment. Review.
24963217 IL-18, IL-18BP, and IL-18R may have roles in the pathogenesis of epithelial ovarian carcinoma
24478434 HPV16 E7 oncoprotein increases production of the IL18BP in keratinocytes.
23873689 these data indicate that IL-18BP, which is produced in EOC in response to microenvironmental factors, may inhibit endogenous or exogenous IL-18 activity
23419721 Data suggest that the imbalance of IL-18/IL-18BP might play an important role in the pathogenesis of systemic juvenile idiopathic arthritis (SJIA) and it might go hand-in-hand with the severity of SJIA.
22913567 Due to highly significant increases in circulating IL-18BP in schizophrenia compared to controls, the levels of free IL-18 are not significantly different between schizophrenic groups.
22289535 The balance between interleukin-18 (IL-18) and its endogenous antagonist, IL-18 binding protein (IL-18BP), was evaluated in children with Henoch-Schonlein purpura.
21867627 Imbalance between IL-18 and IL-18BP may play an important role in pathogenesis of idiopathic thrombocytopenic purpura.
21656327 High IL-18 BP levels indicate the severity of existing glomerular injury in systemic lupus erythematosus.
