Intracellular infection by Leishmania donovani inhibits macrophage apoptosis.


The phagocytic macrophage plays a critical role in host immune responses to microbial infection, and represents a major source of inflammatory and growth cytokines. Intramacrophage infection by the protozoan parasite Leishmania donovani results in increased viability of the host cell in the absence of exogenous growth factor. We demonstrate that infection… (More)
