CD4 T-cell hyporesponsiveness induced by schistosome larvae is not dependent upon eosinophils but may involve connective tissue mast cells.


In areas endemic for schistosomiasis, people can often be in contact with contaminated water resulting in repeated exposures to infective Schistosoma mansoni cercariae. Using a murine model, repeated infections result in IL-10-dependent CD4(+) T-cell hyporesponsiveness in the skin-draining lymph nodes (sdLN), which could be caused by an abundance of… (More)
