Human peripheral blood mononuclear cells were incubated in the presence of Leishmania major promastigotes. The culture supernatants were collected after 24 and 72 h and the cytokine content was measured. It was found that mononuclear cells from cured individuals, in the presence of L. major promastigotes, had increased leishmanicidal activity and secreted… CONTINUE READING
