Delayed-type hypersensitivity (DTH) to live or fixedEntamoeba histolytica was induced and compared in mice and hamsters. Peak reactions were obtained 24 h post-challenge. In mice, challenge with 105 amoebae produced maximal, specific footpad swelling; in hamsters, 5×104 were required. Elicitation of DTH in mice was strongest 1 week after induction and remained comparatively high for 8 weeks. In hamsters, elicitability declined after 1–2 weeks. Cyclophosphamide increased footpad reactions in… CONTINUE READING
