An immunoperoxidase study of immunological factors in high immune and low resistance granulomas in leprosy.

Abstract

The epithelioid cell granuloma in high resistant tuberculoid (TT) leprosy was contrasted with the pure macrophage granuloma of anergic lepromatous leprosy (LL) by evaluating various immunological factors operating in these lesions. The immunoperoxidase technique using antisera to immunoglobulin IgG, IgM, complement C3, C3d and C1q and other products of… (More)
