Cutaneous leishmanial lesions as well as serum samples from both infected human and Swiss-albino mice were used to investigate the role of Fas system (Fas-FasL) as an inducer of apoptosis and other leishmanicidal cytokines in the disease development in cutaneous leishmaniasis. Soluble Fas was estimated by ELISA, other leishmanicidal cytokines were detected(More)
The expression of heat shock proteins (HSPs) and their immunogenic role in host parasite relationship has been studied in T. spiralis infection in mice. Two groups of infective stage larvae were incubated at 37 degrees C or at 43 degrees C for 3 hours in a nutrient medium. Crude somatic extracts and excretory/secretory (E/S) products were obtained.(More)
