Figure 5: HHV-6 exposure decreases the Th2 cytokine production. BAL fluid and lung extracts from HHV-6 exposed mice (filled circles) contain lower levels of the Th2 associated cytokines IL-4, IL-5 and IL-13 compared to control mice (empty circles). Data represent the individual (circles) and the median (line) of IL-4 (A and D),IL-5 (B and E) and IL-13 (C and F) in BAL fluid (A, B and C) and in lung extracts (D, E and F) from 4 independent experiments with at least 5 animals/group.
