Effect of praziquantel and liposome-incorporated praziquantel on peritoneal macrophage activation in mice infected with Mesocestoides corti tetrathyridia (Cestoda).
The activation of peritoneal macrophage effector functions after therapy with free PZQ and PZQ incorporated in liposomes (lip.PZQ) was studied in the Mesocestoides corti-mouse model system. Each drugExpand
