The ability of IL25 to induce the emergence of an MPP cell population identifies a link between the IL17 cytokine family and extramedullary haematopoiesis and suggests a previously unrecognized innate immune pathway that promotes TH2 cytokine responses at mucosal sites.
Since SDF-1[alpha] is a potent lymphocyte chemoattractant and is involved in haematopoiesis (24), the G allele along with the other linked alleles might alter SDF-1[alpha] levels and may influence recruitment of T lymphocyte and other immune cells to the site of infection as well as replenishment of lymphocytes and hence may be associated with susceptibility to PTB in HIV patients.
