Trichinella spiralis-specific immunity can be transferred from immune mothers to suckling neonates via lactation, suggesting that milk from immune dams contains specific factors to T. spiralis. TNF and IL-6 are important cytokines in inflammatory processes, and IL-2 is essential in lymphocyte activation. Using cell line bioassays, we examined the capacity… CONTINUE READING
