Circulating Immune Complexes (IC) and IC-Induced Levels of GM-CSF Are Increased in Sudanese Patients with Acute Visceral Leishmania donovani Infection Undergoing Sodium Stibogluconate Treatment:
Infection with Leishmania donovani is associated with IL-10 as well as with GM-CSF. Immune complexes (IC) exert important functions by stimulation of monocytes/macrophage-mediated production of pro-Expand

Activity and turnover of eosinophil and neutrophil granulocytes are altered in visceral leishmaniasis.
Visceral leishmaniasis (VL) is a health issue in Sudan. Our aim was to investigate the involvement of eosinophils and neutrophils in VL by serum and plasma measurements of eosinophil cationic proteinExpand
