Table 1 IL-4, IL-5, IL-13, and IFNγ thoracic cavity concentrations do not correlate with the MF load or adult worm burden. Spearman correlation of IL-4, IL-5, IL-13, and IFNγ cytokine levels within the thoracic cavity lavage at 71 and 119 days post-L. sigmodontis infection with the total worm numbers and MF load

From: Susceptibility to L. sigmodontis infection is highest in animals lacking IL-4R/IL-5 compared to single knockouts of IL-4R, IL-5 or eosinophils
