In neurocysticercosis, parasite-induced immune suppressive effects are thought to play an important role in enabling site-specific inhibition of inflammatory responses to infections. It is axiomatic that microglia-mediated (M1 proinflammatory) response causes central nervous system inflammation; however, the mechanisms by which

The aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AHR) is a ligand-dependent transcription factor. It heterodimerizes with aryl hydrocarbon nuclear translocator, binds to the xenobiotic-responsive element (XRE), and enhances the transcription of genes encoding xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes. AHR also plays important roles in the
