OBJECTIVES We characterized the T helper cytokine profiles in the respiratory tract of infants infected with influenza virus, human metapneumovirus, and respiratory syncytial virus to examine whether these agents elicit similar cytokine responses and whether T helper type 2 polarization is associated with wheezing and severe disease. METHODS A prospective study of infants who were seeking medical help for acute upper and/or lower respiratory tract infection symptoms for the first time and… CONTINUE READING
