Role of interferon - g on the immunosuppression during Toxoplasma gondii infection by Trypanosoma lewisi

  title={Role of interferon - g on the immunosuppression during Toxoplasma gondii infection by Trypanosoma lewisi},
  author={Misael Chinchilla and Liliana Reyes and Olga Marta Guerrero and Alfredo Castro},
On the basis of previous studies on Trypanosoma lewisi immunosuppression model groups of 5 Wistar rats were infected with. T. gondii and T. lewisi according to the following protocol. One group was inoculated i.p. with 10 6 T. lewisi tripanomastigotes and 4 days later with 10 7 T. gondii tachyzoites. The second and third groups were infected only with T. lewisi or T. gondii respectively. The fourth group was not infected and served as control. Rats were bled before the infection and then every… Expand

The results suggest that conditions are gathered for rat to human transmission of T. lewisi in these socio-environmentally degraded urban areas, thus pointing towards the rapidly urbanizing Abidjan-Lagos corridor as a region at particular risk. Expand
Comparison of two serological methods for the diagnosis IgG antibody against in newborn

Role of nitric oxide in the immunosuppressive effect of trypanosoma lewisi on multiplication of toxoplasma gondii in white rats
This poster presents a probabilistic procedure that can be used to assess the impact of repeated exposure to radiation on the immune system through a variety of mechanisms, including “self-consistency” and “cell reprograming. Expand

The restoration of normal splenocyte responses to Con A by addition of exogenous IL 2 or by washing cells suggests that the suppressor factor acts on the T cells by inhibiting their proliferation and IL 2 production, and the continued presence of these products is essential in the maintenance of suppression.

Increasing of Toxoplasma gondii (Coccidia, Sarcocystidae) infections by Trypanosoma lewisi (Kinetoplastida, Trypanosomatidae) in white rats.
The increase in T. gondii multiplication in white rats is observed four days after trypanosome inoculation and is dependent on rat strain, but not on inoculum size or rat age, although Humoral and cellular factors may have a role in the increase. Expand
Infection of white rat peritoneal macrophages with Toxoplasma gondii, (Coccidia: Sarcocystidae) after Trypanosoma lewisi (Kinetoplastida: Trypanosomatidae) infection.
It has been demonstrated that in vivo, but not in vitro T. lewisi infections, causes an important decrease of the natural resistance to T. gondii of the white rats, which is manifested by the major invasion and multiplication of the parasite inside of peritoneal macrophages. Expand
Trypanosoma lewisi, a parasitic, protozoan hemoflagellate of the rat, has attracted the interest of biologists for many years, but until the now classical studies of Taliaferro were begun in the 1920’s the unique nature of the immunological response to the parasite was fully appreciated. Expand
Suppression by Trypanosoma cruzi of T-cell receptor expression by activated human lymphocytes.
If occurring in infected hosts, the alterations that T. cruzi causes in the expression of TcR, CD4, CD8 and IL-2R--all molecules playing important roles in lymphocyte activation--could contribute to the development of the immunosuppression observed during the acute phase of Chagas' disease. Expand

Mechanisms underlying trypanosome-elicited immunosuppression.
Results indicate that the uptake of T. brucei by macrophages, either in vivo or in vitro, results in the generation of suppressive cells that annihilate T-cell proliferative responses. Expand

Trypanosome-induced suppression of T and B cell responses to parasite-related and -unrelated Ags is considered a major mechanism of evasion of the host’s immune defenses by the parasite. Reduced TExpand
