Autoimmunity Induced by Hydrocarbon Oils in Mice

Abstract

For many decades, mineral oils with or without dried mycobacteria, i.e. Complete and Incomplete Freund ́s Adjuvant, have been the most commonly used immune adjuvants for experimental work. Later on, better defined hydrocarbon oils such as pristane (2,6,10,14-tetramethylpentadecane), squalene (2,6,10,15,19,23-hexamethyl-2,6,10,14,18,22-tetracosa-hexane), or… (More)
