AIM To explore the anti-schistosomal hepatic fibrosis effect and the changes in transforming growth factor-beta 1 (TGF-beta 1) and its receptors (TGF-beta RII) in S. japonicum infected mice after intrasplenic transplantation of gamma-interferon (IFN-gamma) gene-modified hepatocytes. METHODS At 16 wk after infection with cercariae of Schistosoma japonicum… CONTINUE READING
