Resistance and susceptibility to different parasitic diseases have been associated with the predominance of Th1- or Th2-type immune responses. In experimental murine cysticercosis a Th1 response seems to be involved in resistance, whereas Th2 activity is associated with heavy parasite intensities. To test this notion the roles of Th1- and Th2-type cytokines in infected mice were studied after treatment with anticytokine monoclonal antibodies or with recombinant murine cytokines during early… CONTINUE READING
