Infections with a dominant humoral immune response induce a higher expression of Th2-related cytokines and are associated with low levels of IFN-[gamma] and IL-2, whereas those characterized by delayed-type hypersensitivity response show a higher expression of Th1 cytokines, IFN-[gamma], and IL-2, and low levels of IL-4.
