Hydatidosis is a severe parasitic disease caused by infection with metacestode of the tapeworms Echinococcus granulosus. In human, the larval forms develop into large cysts especially in the liver, lung and brain. Our aim in this study was to investigate Th1 and Th2 cytokines production in hydatid disease in order to evaluate implication of Th1/Th2 ratio in the evolution of pathology according to the cystic localization, clinical stage and clinical evolution. Interferon-gamma (IFN-gamma… CONTINUE READING
