BACKGROUND The pathogenesis of myocarditis that occurs in Trypanosoma cruzi-infected mice is still poorly understood. Therefore, it is important to know the mediators that trigger leukocyte migration(More)
OBJECTIVE Inflammatory and immune reactions raised in response to periodontopathogens are thought to trigger periodontal tissue destruction. We therefore investigated the expression of matrix(More)
In the present study, we describe the ability of Trypanosoma cruzi trypomastigotes to stimulate the synthesis of beta-chemokines by macrophages. In vivo infection with T. cruzi led to MIP-1alpha,(More)
Cell invasion by Trypanosoma cruzi and its intracellular replication are essential for continuation of the parasite life cycle and for production of Chagas' disease. T. cruzi is able to replicate in(More)
We investigated the kinetics of parasite replication, leukocyte migration, and cytokine/chemokine mRNA expression in the heart tissue from animals infected with the Colombiana strain of Trypanosoma(More)
The outcome and severity of some diseases correlate with the dominance of either the T helper 1 (Th1) or Th2 immune response, which is stimulated by IL-12 or IL-4, respectively. In the present study(More)
