This webinar explores the clinical significance of soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2R) in immunological diseases. The IL-2/IL-2R axis is a major pathway in immune functioning. Upon T-cell activation, sIL-2R is secreted, and increased sIL-2R levels occur in various diseases. Despite incomplete understanding of its biological role, sIL-2R was linked in studies to the presence and disease activity of immune-mediated diseases like hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis and sarcoidosis, as well as other (immune-mediated) diseases. The webinar provides insights into the IL-2/IL-2R axis before delving into the clinical value of measuring sIL-2R in different types of immunological disorders, highlighting its potential role as a laboratory marker in immune-mediated diseases.

Key learning objectives

    b. Haemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis
    c. Others
