Abstract

Interleukin-15 (IL-15) is a critical regulator of immune responses, especially at mucosal interfaces within the gastro-intestinal tract. Here, we describe the discovery and characterization of a humanized antibody to IL-15. Data from its epitope and mode of action, cell biology and primate pharmacology, as well as translational studies in human samples and in vivo proof-of-concept experiments in mouse models demonstrate the therapeutic potential of this new antibody targeting IL-15 for refractory celiac disease and eosinophilic esophagitis.
