Prednisone stimulates Th1 but enhances th2 when discontinued

Postby hullcrush » Sun Nov 02, 2008 4:16 am

Prednisone blocks il-4 and il-10 thus increasing interferon gamma, an integral part of th1.
But after it is discontinued, the il-4 and il-10 are worse than before the prednisone was started. Why is this?
