Circulation CD4(+)CD25(+)FoxP3(+) regulatory T cells (Tregs) have been associated with the delicate balancing between control of overwhelming acute malaria infection and prevention of immune pathology due to disproportionate inflammatory responses to erythrocytic stage of the parasite. While the role of Tregs has been well-documented in murine models and P.(More)
Several immunoregulatory mechanisms are proposed to be effective both in human and experimental Trypanosoma cruzi infection. However, the role of CD4+CD25high T cells in Chagas disease has not yet been elucidated. These cells are critical for the regulation of immune response to infectious agents and in the control of autoimmune diseases. In this study, the(More)
