Complete Freund's adjuvant (CFA) induced suppression of diabetes in NOD mice has been associated with a shift to Th2 cytokine production. NOD mice deficient in IL4 were created to investigate the role of IL4 in this shift. Mice homozygous for the Il4tm1Cgn targeted mutation are viable and fertile. T and B cell development is normal but IgG1and IgE levels and the ability of homozygous mutant mice to produce Th2-derived cytokines are significantly reduced. IL4 deficient NOD mice develop IDDM with the same incidence as standard NOD/Lt controls, and there is no change between IL4 deficient and wildtype NOD in disease protection conferred by treatment of bacillus Calmette-Guerin vaccine (BCG) or CFA. Both IL4 deficient and wildtype NOD mice are significantly protected from insulitis by treatment of CFA but not by treatment of BCG. (Serreze et al 2001)
