Pathogenesis of secondary amyloidosis in an alveolar hydatid cyst-mouse model: histopathology and immuno/enzyme-histochemical analysis of splenic marginal zone cells during amyloidogenesis.


C57BL/6 mice infected with 10, 50 or 250 alveolar hydatid cysts (AHC) were used to study the pathogenesis of secondary amyloidosis. Immuno and enzyme-histochemical analyses on spleen sections were performed to investigate the temporal relationship between AHC antigen, serum amyloid A protein (SAA) and amyloid (AA) deposition and concomitant qualitative and… (More)
