[Acquired resistance to facultative intracellular bacteria: as to the identity of the cell mediating protection and delayed hypersensitivity (author's transl)].

Abstract

Acquired resistance to facultative intracellular bacteria depends on two interacting classes of cells: antigen specific T lymphocytes and mononuclear phagocytes. After specific interaction with antigen, T lymphocytes are capable of activating mononuclear phagocytes to form granulomas and to acquire enhanced bacteriocidal capacity. In general, protection is… (More)
