Pathogenesis of Glutathione Deficiency: Cytokine Selection (Slide 1)
“Glutathione Levels in Antigen-presenting Cells Modulate Th1 Versus Th2 Response Patterns.” (Title of Article)
- “...the Th1 pattern is characterized by interleukin 12 (IL-12) and interferon ? (IFN-?) production and the up-regulation cell-mediated, e.g.,delayed hypersensitvity, (DTH) responses.”
- “The Th2 response pattern is characterized by IL-4 and IL-10 production and up-regulation of a variety of antibody responses.”
