The effect of treatment with monoclonal antibodies (Mabs) which deplete CD4+ or CD8+ T lymphocytes, on infections with Eimeria spp. was examined in NIH mice. Treatment with anti-CD4 Mab increased susceptibility to primary infections with E. vermiformis or E. pragensis and reduced the subsequent resistance of the mice to homologous challenge. Similar(More)
Cellular and cytokine responses to infection with Eimeria vermiformis were compared in BALB/c (resistant) and C57BL/6 (B6-susceptible) inbred mice. Cellular responses in the mesenteric lymph node (MLN) occurred sooner after primary infection in the resistant BALB/c strain. In contrast, proliferative responses occurred earlier after challenge in B6 mice.(More)
The effect of infection and subsequent challenge with Eimeria maxima on the populations of lymphocytes in the small intestine of Light Sussex chickens was assessed by immunohistochemistry. T cells were characterized for CD3, CD4, CD8, TCR1 (gamma delta heterodimer) or TCR2 (alpha beta 1 heterodimer) markers, and B cells for the expression of IgM, IgA and(More)
Six Black patients (five born in the West Indies and one in Guyana), aged 21-55 years, had adult T-cell lymphoma-leukaemia diagnosed in the U.K. This disorder is rare in Europe and the U.S.A., but is more common in Japan. Five patients had severe hypercalcaemia which correlated with disease activity, although osteolytic lesions were found in only one. Other(More)
Suspensions of cells prepared from the caecal tonsils and spleen, and the peripheral blood lymphocytes of chickens immune to Eimeria maxima, were tested for their ability to transfer resistance to syngeneic recipients. The intravenous injection of approximately 6 x 10(8) spleen cells or peripheral blood lymphocytes caused a significant reduction of oocyst(More)
The peripheral blood leucocyte (PBL) response to infection with two species of the intestinal protozoan Eimeria shows a remarkably similar pattern in both rats and chickens. Like resistance to these parasites, the PBL response to reinfection is species-specific and it coincides with the inhibition of development of the parasite and with cellular(More)
The reproduction of Eimeria vermiformis in different strains of phenotypically normal mice and in mice with various immunological characteristics or defects was compared. In some strains of phenotypically normal mice there were marked differences in oocyst production, both in terms of numbers and in the duration of patency, allowing the strains to be(More)
