Granulocyte colony-stimulating factor partially repairs the damage provoked by Trypanosoma cruzi in murine myocardium.

Abstract

BACKGROUND The hallmark of Trypanosoma cruzi infection is cardiomyopathy that leads to end-stage heart failure. We investigated whether G-CSF, known to induce heart tissue repair by bone marrow stem cell mobilization, ameliorates T. cruzi-induced myocarditis. METHODS AND RESULTS T. cruzi-infected C3H/He mice were treated with G-CSF and monitored for… (More)
