Rejuvenation of deteriorated host immune functions is imperative for successful annihilation of Leishmania parasites. The use of immunomodulatory agents may have several advantages as they conquer immunosuppression and, when given in combination, improve current therapeutic regimens. We herein investigated the immunostimulatory potency of a β‐glucan, lentinan either alone or in combination with short dose of standard drug, miltefosine on Leishmania‐infected J‐774A.1 macrophages. Our study shows… Expand
