The consequences of immunoenhancement are less well established but include influenza-like reactions such as chills, malaise, and hypotension, as well as exacerbation of chronic infections, psoriasis, Crohn disease, and autoimmune diseases (Descotes and Choquet-Kastylevsky 2001).

All of the statistically significant correlations between OC concentrations and lymphocyte proliferation were positive, suggesting immunoenhancement (Table 1).
Because intentional, experimental exposure of protected sea turtles to contaminants is not feasible, we used in vitro experiments to further investigate the immunoenhancement suggested by the correlations observed between lymphocyte proliferation and actual environmental exposure to OCs in the pilot study.
