The immunologic modulation of morbidity in schistosomiasis. Studies in athymic mice and in vitro granuloma formation.

Abstract

These studies were designated to test the hypothesis that granulomatous hypersensitivity associated with schistosomiasis, its modulation, and subsequent morbidity are contingent on thymic-dependent lymphocyte function. Studies in athymic mice were integrated with in vitro studies on granuloma formation. Athymic animals tolerate low levels of infection well… (More)
