Leishmania major: effects of proteophosphoglycan on reactive oxygen species, IL-12, IFN-gamma and IL-10 production in healthy individuals.


Protozoan parasites of the genus Leishmania secrete a range of proteophosphoglycans (PPG) known to be important for successful colonization of Leishmania in the sandfly and for virulence in the mammalian host.
