Efferent lymphatic cannulation was used to study the dissemination of strain S48 of Toxoplasma gondii and the cell output from the prefemoral lymph node, after infection of both "naive" and vaccinated sheep. In the former the mean cell output decreased for 3 days before reaching a peak at 11 and 12 days, but in vaccinated ewes a similar drop in cell output and subsequent peak occurred significantly earlier, at 24 h and 5 days, respectively. The cellular response in both types of sheep was… CONTINUE READING
