Effects of Oestradiol and the Oestrogen Antagonist lei 182,780 on the Delayed Type Hypersensitivity (DTH) Index and on Serum Levels of lgM and lgG in Ovariectomised Balb/C and MRL/Mp-Lpr/Lpr Mice, a Model of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).

Abstract

The effects of oestradiol and the oestrogen receptor antagonist ICI 182,780 were investigated on the DTH index, serum IgG and IgM levels and spleen weight in female BALB/c and MRLIMP-Ipr/lpr mice.
