Infection with Toxoplasma gondii does not Alter TNFα and IL-6 Secretion by A human Astrocytoma Cell Line

The secretion of tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNFalpha), interleukin-1alpha (IL-alpha) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) by a human astrocytoma cell fine was studied 1 h, 3 h, 6 h and 24 h after infection with tachyzoites from three Toxoplasma gondii strains (virulent, RH; cystogentc, 76K and Prugniaud strains).
