Correlative studies of blastogenic responses and interleukin 1 production by mononuclear cells from patients with zoopathogenic fungal infections.


The production of interleukin 1 (IL 1) by adherent peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMC) was quantitated in 16 individuals infected with Histoplasma capsulatum or Blastomyces dermatitidis and 16 age-matched controls. In parallel, we measured blastogenic responses to phytohemagglutinin (PHA) by PBMC from patients and controls. Of the 16 patients, six had… (More)
