Thymol and carvacrol, two main components of thyme, have several valuable effects on the immune system. This study aims to evaluate the effects of these components on T-helper (TH) cell responses and their subsets in mice immunized with ovalbumin. The effects of these components on: a specific in vivo immune response were evaluated by assessing changes in delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH); ex vivo splenocyte proliferative responses were evaluated using a BrdU assay gene expression of… CONTINUE READING
