1147 the Enhancing Effect of Interferon-β and Γ on the Killing of Leishmania Tropica Major in Human Monocytes in Vitro

Abstract

Native human interferon (IFN) β or γ added to human monocytes in culture increased their leishmaniacidal effect on intracellular Leishmania tropica major amastigotes. This effect was dose dependent and was apparent if the IFN was added either prior to or after infection of the monocyte cultures with the promastigote form of the parasite. IFN-γ was shown to… (More)
