 Tissue eosinophilia was observed in the subcutaneous tissue of mice shortly after their inoculation not only with living but also with lysed promastigotes of Leishmania amazonensis. Intraperitoneal inoculation of lysed promastigotes from five different Leishmania species (L. donovani, L. chagasi, L. tropica, L. amazonensis, and L. braziliensis) induced eosinophil accumulation in the mouse peritoneum. This eosinophil infiltration was also detected in C5-deficient AKR mice, indicating complement… CONTINUE READING
