Rabbits were treated with subcutaneous injections of ten doses of 5 x 10(3) units of human recombinant interleukin-2 (IL-2) during a first infestation with five adult pairs Ixodes ricinus per rabbit, while untreated controls were infested by either five (direct control) or 25 pairs (resistant control) per rabbit.
