We have previously reported the presence of marked immune dysregulation with a dominant Th2 profile, in a population of Ethiopian immigrants (ETH) in Israel heavily infected with helminths. In order to characterize better this immune dysregulation we studied by flow cytometry the expression of several activation markers on peripheral T cell populations, and… CONTINUE READING
