I don't think anyone clearly understands the relationship between atopy, disease and the Th1/Th1 responses but the whole thing is very interesting and very pertinent in allergy, asthma and autoimmunity.Sandrine wrote:maybe some of you have heard about the th1/th2 balance of the immune system. Th1 and th2 are different subtypes of t-lymphocytes which produce different cytokines to "communicate". Autoimmune disease (MS) is a th1 immune answer, allergy seem to be th2.
ut out of curiosity I'd like to clarify that you've been having ongoing allergy problems due to the mould?
