Interaction of Bartonella henselae with the murine macrophage cell line J774: infection and proinflammatory response.

Abstract

Bartonella henselae is the causative agent of cat scratch disease (CSD), a self-limiting condition characterized by a subacute regional lymphadenopathy that may develop into disseminated bartonellosis in immunocompromised subjects.
