In this study, human sebocytes were treated wi th 0.1–10.0× of IL-4, IL-10, IL-12 and IFN-γ for 3 or 5 days to elucidate the effects on lipid content. Treatment with individual cytokines decreased the lipid content at specific concentrations rather than in a concentration-dependent manner. Specifically, 5.0× of IL-4, 5.0× of IFN-γ (5.0IF N), and 0.5×, 5.0× and 10.0× of IL-10 for 3 days, and 0.5× of IL-4 (0.5IL4) for 5 days decreased lipid content to 87.6–93.0% of the control. Treatment with other concentrations of IL-4, IL-10 and IFN-γ, ...
