Leishmania spp. cause a broad spectrum of diseases collectively known as leishmaniasis. Leishmania braziliensis is the main etiological agent of American cutaneous leishmaniasis and mucocutaneous leishmaniasis. During experimental infection with L. braziliensis, BALB/c mice develop an adaptive immune response that is associated with lesion healing and, in parallel, parasite persistence within draining lymph nodes (dLNs). In the Leishmania major model of cutaneous leishmaniasis, regulatory T… CONTINUE READING
