Somatic extracts and excretory/secretory (ES) products from Fasciola gigantica suppress the release of toxic oxygen intermediates by activated sheep neutrophils. At the concentrations used both the somatic extracts and ES products had no effect on neutrophil viability and in both cases the inhibitory effect was reversible. In the somatic extracts, heating or treatment with trypsin destroyed the inhibitory effect. However, the ES products contained at least two immunomodulatory factors. One was… CONTINUE READING
