Re: Mercury myth

Yes, but it goes on to say: "Immunoregulation of HgCl2-induced autoimmunity may
also depend upon this balance: the autoimmune response
spontaneously terminates even if HgCl2 injections are continued
[16], and there is evidence that previously defective
Thl functions are restored during this regulation phase [17].
Perhaps it is not surprising therefore that the immune stimulation
induced by HgCl2 is not solely confined to the Th2
compartment: there is also evidence that interferon-gamma
(IFN-y), usually regarded as a Thl cytokine, is up-regulated
after HgCl2 in vivo in the rat, albeit to a lesser degree than IL-4
and with a different time course (Gillespie & Mathieson, "

DOesnt this mean both Th1 and Th2 are upregulated ?
