Grass pollen-specific immunotherapy involves immunomodulation of allergen-specific TH2 responses and induction of IL-10+ and/or TGF-β+CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells (induced Treg cells). IL-35+CD4+CD25+ forkhead box protein 3-negative T (IL-35-inducible regulatory T [iTR35]) cells have been reported as a novel subset of induced Treg cells with modulatory characteristics.
