Cytokine and antibody serum profiles of B. abortus 2308 infected mice. (A) Serum cytokine levels in BALB/c mice after infection with virulent B. abortus (INF-γ, TNF-α, RANTES) or attenuated vaccine S19 (IL-6, IL-12) stains (adapted from [135, 137, 148, 149]). (B) Antibody response of virulent B. abortus 2308 infected CD-1 mice (adapted from ). Notice that in “A” the absolute units are different for each cytokine, according to the indication (e.g. while TNF-α, INF-γ, RANTES are measured in pg/mL, IL-12 are in pg/mL/5 and IL-6, in Units/mL). For clarity, the SD were not included.
