While it is generally accepted that acute blood stage malarial infections are resolved through the actions of protective antibodies, we observed that resistance to acute infection with Plasmodium chabaudi adami was mediated by T cell-dependent cellular immune mechanisms independent of antibody. We now report that acute blood stage infections caused by three(More)
Numerous studies have found that visual deficits are associated with dyslexia. The prevailing theory regarding this association is that dyslexia is the result of a deficit in the magnocellular system (earlier called the transient system) in the visual pathway. An essential assumption of this theory is that the parvocellular system (formerly called the(More)
It has been reported that ibogaine interferes with somatic withdrawal reactions in rats chronically treated with morphine. The present experiments demonstrated that ibogaine also interferes with motivational withdrawal reactions and somatic withdrawal reactions in rats treated with morphine on only two occasions. On each of two conditioning trials, naloxone(More)
The precursor of the major merozoite surface Ag (PMMSA) represents one of the principal molecules of the erythrocytic stages of malarial parasites. Previously we reported that mAb 302 recognizing the 230-kDa PMMSA of Plasmodium yoelii provided passive protection to mice challenged with this parasite. We now report that the protective capacity of mAb 302 is(More)
The role of splenic leukocyte oxidative activity and macrophage activation in the development of protective immunity was examined during acute Plasmodium chabaudi adami malaria. Splenic leukocyte oxidative activity was compared in infected BALB/c and P/J mice; the latter are known to suffer from defects in macrophage function. Phorbol myristate(More)
