Protective role of gamma interferon in experimental pulmonary paracoccidioidomycosis.

Abstract

We have developed a murine model of pulmonary infection by Paracoccidioides brasiliensis in which resistance was associated with immunological activities governed by gamma interferon (IFN-gamma). To better characterize this model, we measured type 1 and type 2 cytokines in the lungs and investigated the effect of endogenous IFN-gamma depletion by monoclonal… (More)
