Application of an in vivo culture system for rapid demonstration of anti-Leishmania activity of monoclonal antibodies.

Abstract

In mice, infection with Leishmania by the subcutaneous route becomes evident after about 2 months. This delay impedes the selection of monoclonal antibodies able to interfere with the infectiousness of the parasite. Using an in vivo culture system--intraperitoneal injection of TG 180 sarcoma cells along with promastigotes or amastigotes--it was possible to… (More)
