Identification and Cloning of a Cryptococcal Deacetylase That Produces Protective Immune Responses
ABSTRACT Cell-mediated immunity plays a crucial role in host defenses against Cryptococcus (Filobasidiella) neoformans. Therefore, the identification of cryptococcal antigens capable of producingExpand

Role of IL-10 in a neonatal mouse listeriosis model.
This study was undertaken to test the hypothesis that altered IL-10 production plays a role in the increased susceptibility of neonates to listeriosis. Plasma IL-10 levels were measured in neonatalExpand

Production of TNF alpha and interleukin 6 by differentiated U937 cells infected with Leishmania major.
Several cytokines play a crucial role in the defense of the host against protozoa belonging to the genus Leishmania. However, the role of tumor necrosis factor alpha (TNF alpha) and interleukin 6Expand

Interleukin-6 production by human monocytes stimulated with Cryptococcus neoformans components.
In order to ascertain if Cryptococcus neoformans components can induce interleukin-6 (IL-6) production, we stimulated human whole blood with purified capsular products. Their potencies in stimulatingExpand

Role of gamma interferon in a neonatal mouse model of group B streptococcal disease.
The aim of this study was to assess the role of gamma interferon (IFN-gamma) in a neonatal mouse model of group B streptococcal (GBS) sepsis. IFN-gamma was produced by spleen cells at 24, 48, and 72Expand

Microsatellite-based genotyping of Candida parapsilosis sensu stricto isolates reveals dominance and persistence of a particular epidemiological clone among neonatal intensive care unit patients.
In this study, using multilocus microsatellite analysis, we report the genetic characterization of 27 Candida parapsilosis isolates recovered in two different periods of time (2007-2009 andExpand
