Eosinophils in the cerebrospinal fluid of mice infected with Angiostrongylus cantonensis are resistant to apoptosis.

Interleukin-5 (IL-5) transgenic mice were used to assess the immunological features of CSF eosinophils from mice infected with Angiostrongylus cantonensis. CSF eosinophils were hypodense by day 14 post infection (p.i.). CSF eosinophils survived longer in vitro than peritoneal eosinophils collected from cadmium sulphate (CdSO(4)) -treated normal IL-5… CONTINUE READING
