Analysis of the antigen-specific IFN-gamma producing T-cell subsets in cattle experimentally infected with Mycobacterium bovis.


Three 10 months old cattle were infected by the intratracheal route with 10(6)cfu of a field strain of Mycobacterium bovis. Blood samples were regularly collected for in vitro IFN-gamma production after antigenic stimulation. Peripheral blood cells of infected animals produced IFN-gamma in response to crude M. bovis antigens (live and heat-inactivated BCG… (More)
