Influences of methionine enkephalin (met-enk) on delayed hypersensitivity (DH) against 2,4-dinitrofluoro-benzene (DNFB) and interleukin-2 (IL-2) production of mouse lymphocytes were examined. Met-enk enhanced the DH response to ear challenge when mice were treated with met-enk beginning at the same time as cpicutaneous sensitization with DNFB but not after being sensitized. When met-enk (10 nmol.L-1-100 mumol.L-1) was included in Con A-stimulated lymphocyte cultures, the IL-2 production… CONTINUE READING
