    ..In conclusion, our data provide direct evidence that CD103+ LDCs are more potent in promoting Th1/Th17 immunity to chlamydial lung infection than CD11bhi LDCs. ..

    ..These findings suggest that intracellular bacterial infection can inhibit established allergic responses via alteration of local cytokine production and the expression of adhesion molecules. ..

    ..Our study provides in vivo evidence that even closely related pathogens may activate different functional NKT subsets, which can further polarize CD4+ and CD8+ cells in adaptive immune responses. ..

    ..These results suggest that IL-10 inhibits the priming and expansion of Th1-like T cell responses and that IL-10 plays a role in the fibrotic reaction seen with chlamydial infection. ..

    ..The data also argue that IL-10 may be more influential in the development of IL-5-producing Th2 cells which differ from typical Th2 cells producing both IL-4 and IL-5. ..
