Macrophage-dependent candidacidal mechanisms in the murine system. Comparison of murine Kupffer cell and peritoneal macrophage candidacidal mechanisms.

Abstract

Candida albicans infection is common in immunocompromised patients. The role of fixed tissue macrophages (M phi), including Kupffer cells (KC) and peritoneal macrophages (PM phi), in host defense against C. albicans is unclear. This study examined murine M phi candidacidal mechanisms and evaluated the in vitro role of the macrophage-activating factor IFN… (More)
