Abstract

The ultimate reason for better characterizing the immune response to infectious agents is the hope that this knowledge may lead to the development of better preventative or therapeutic measures. As more information becomes available, it becomes possible to incorporate these findings into the design of better vaccines and treatments. Likewise, attempts to either enhance or suppress specific helper T-cell responses may be required to control immunopathologic reactions. Although cytokine intervention in the clinical setting remains theoretic at this time, future manipulation based on the TH1/TH2 paradigm is probable.
