Somatostatin Negatively Regulates Parasite Burden and Granulomatous Responses in Cysticercosis

Figure 3

Effect of somatostatin deficiency on levels of cytokines in T. crassiceps-induced granulomas. Levels of IFN-γ (a), IL-4 (b), IL-10 (c), and IL-1β (d) normalized to total protein within peritoneal granulomas obtained from Taenia crassiceps-infected WT mice ( = 6–8) or SOM−/− mice ( = 6–8). Data presented are mean ± SEM; the asterisk ( ) indicates that the cytokine levels were different ( ).
