    ..Thus, valinomycin in very small doses may profoundly alter the immune response by reducing NK cell cytotoxicity and cytokine production...

    A Paananen
    Department of Pathology, Haartman Institute, University of Helsinki, Finland
    Clin Exp Immunol 129:420-8. 2002
    ..As the emesis causing concentration of cereulide is around 10 microg/kg of total body mass, our results suggest that emesis causing or even lower doses of cereulide may also have a systemic natural killer cell suppressive effect...

    S Matikainen
    Department of Microbiology, National Public Health Institute, Helsinki, Finland
    Eur J Immunol 31:2236-45. 2001
    ..Our results demonstrate that IFN-alpha and IL-18 are important innate cytokines in inducing NK cell IFN-gamma production...
