Glucocorticoids promote a TH2 cytokine response by CD4+ T cells in vitro.

Abstract

Purified rat CD4+ T cells were activated in vitro in the presence or absence of the glucocorticoid dexamethasone. They were then expanded in IL-2 and subsequently restimulated, this time in the absence of the hormone. The results indicate that the exposure of the cells to dexamethasone in the primary stimulation changed the cytokine synthesis induced by the… (More)
