From: Somatic extracts of Marshallagia marshalli downregulate the Th2 associated immune responses in ovalbumin-induced airway inflammation in BALB/c mice

Fig. 4

Somatic extract of M. marshalli significantly suppressed Th2 cytokines via upregulation of IL-10 and TGF-β. Mice received somatic extract of M. marshalli during each sensitization and challenged with OVA on days 14, 15 and 16. Lung tissues were collected at day 17 and homogenized on the day of analysis. Cytokine responses (a IL-4, b IL-13, c IL-10, d TGF-β) were measured in mice given OVA/Alum in the presence or absence of somatic products. Error bars are SD. P < 0.05; one-way ANOVA
