Abstract

The role of type 2 T cell responses on the severity of post-infectious encephalitis was investigated in a mouse model of influenza virus infection. When mice were infected intracerebrally with 3.0 LD(50) of A/NWS33 strain of influenza virus, they all showed clinical signs of encephalitis, and 90% of them died within 10 days of the infection.
