Generation of reactive oxygen species by Kupffer cells and blood monocytes during intestinal amebiasis in guinea pigs

The reactive oxygen species generation capacity of Kupffer cells and blood monocytes was studied through chemiluminescence (CL) in guinea pigs, infected intracecally withEntameba histolytica, on days 0,3,7,14 and 21 post infection. There was an elevated response up to the 14th post-infection day. The CL response of these cells was diminished on the 21st… CONTINUE READING
