The purpose of this study was to identify the cell populations involved in recovery from oral infections with Candida albicans. Monoclonal antibodies specific for CD4+ cells, CD8+ cells, and polymorphonuclear leukocytes were used to deplete BALB/c and CBA/CaH mice of the relevant cell populations in systemic circulation. Monocytes were inactivated with the cytotoxic chemical carrageenan. Mice were infected with 10(8) C. albicans yeast cells and monitored for 21 days. Systemic depletion of CD4… CONTINUE READING
