Clomerulopathy in mice infected with Plasmodium berghei: induction of an autoimmune process.

Abstract

1. Apparently a living, metabolizing parasite is required to induce the formation of autoantibodies. 2. It seems unlikely that immune complexes of the first type, i.e., positive for plasmodial antigens, are responsible for the induction of autoantibodies, as the transferred malarious plasma (group B) also contained that type of immune complex, but did not… (More)
