Interferon-gamma and interleukin-12 genes are preferentially expressed during early experimental African trypanosomiasis and suppressed by denervation of the spleen.

Abstract

The cross talk between the central nervous system (CNS) and the immune system includes among others, the modulation of immune responses by the autonomic nervous system. Here, we investigated the effects of a splenic denervation on cytokine induction in early experimental African trypanosomiasis. Profiles of the cytokine mRNA expression for interleukin (IL… (More)
