Abstract

Intracellular bacteria and protozoa typically stimulate host responses dominated by Type 1 cytokine production and cell-mediated immune effector functions. While the probable role of these responses is to limit growth of the infecting pathogen, the basis of their preferential induction is poorly understood and poses a fundamental question in immunologic class selection(1).
