Junin virus-induced encephalitis in suckling mouse is a delayed-type hypersensitivity reaction, whose immunopathologic nature has been proven by suppressing the thymus-dependent response. Cyclophosphamide (CY) given at day +6 post-infection (p.i.) has been shown to modulate infection, presumably by TDTH lymphocyte inactivation. To determine critical timing(More)
INTRODUCTION AND OBJECTIVES To analyze the treatment modality and outcome of a series of patients with giant acoustic neuromas, a particular type of tumour characterised by their size (extracanalicular diameter of 4cm or more) and high morbidity and mortality. MATERIALS AND METHODS This was a retrospective unicentre study of patients with acoustic(More)
Delayed-type-hypersensitivity (DTH) response "in vivo" is commonly evaluated by the footpad swelling test (FPST). High doses of Sheep Red Blood Cells (SRBC) are known to produce negligible DTH, while low doses lead to optimal sensitization. As expected FPST values obtained in Balb/c mice using 10(6) or 10(8) SRBC as sensitizing doses, showed that in 9 out(More)
