Susceptibilities of macrophage populations to infection in vitro by Leishmania donovani.

Many studies have demonstrated differences in the resistance of strains of mice to infection by Leishmania donovani, Salmonella typhimurium, and Mycobacterium bovis BCG; this resistance/susceptibility phenotype seems to be controlled by a single gene. The present study investigated the susceptibility of liver, lung, peritoneal, and spleen macrophages to… CONTINUE READING
