This study investigated the effect of naturally acquired bacterial infection of the bovine mammary gland on subpopulations of T lymphocytes and cytokine expression in milk. Twenty-nine lactating cows with mastitis were compared to 12 normal animals. CD4+ lymphocytes represented a significantly greater percentage of the milk-derived lymphocytes in infected mammary glands compared to normal controls. Cytokine mRNA expression by cells derived from milk was investigated using reverse transcriptase… CONTINUE READING
