The proliferative response of nylon wool purified, primed lymph node cells to L. tropica parasites in vitro was found to be restored by the addition of either syngeneic or allogeneic adherent spleen cells as a putative source of macrophages. These results suggested a lack of H-2 restriction in Leishmania-specific T cell responses. However, when T cell… CONTINUE READING
