The majority of patients infected with lymphatic filariae are microfilaremic but tend to manifest little obvious pathology because of the infections. Data collected from the Mongolian gerbil-Brugia spp. model for human lymphatic filariasis suggest this experimental animal model system most closely represents this patient group and will be useful in studying immunological parameters associated with chronic infections. This article reports the quantitation of interleukin (IL)-4, IL-5, IL-10, IL… CONTINUE READING
