  • This review highlights striking similarities in the down-regulated inflammatory responses that are observed in chronic infectious diseases. It is clear that peripheral mononuclear cells show poor antigen-specific T cell proliferation in lymphatic filariasis as well as schistosomiasis. With respect to cytokines both Th1- and Th2-type products are down-regulated during chronic infection. Drug treatment restores responsiveness in both diseases indicating a link between infection and immune… CONTINUE READING
