Plasma of cattle infected with Trypanosoma vivax IL2337 was analysed for the presence of bovine tumour necrosis factor (TNF) by EIA in which TNF was captured by a monoclonal antibody (MoAb BC9) and detected by a rabbit polyclonal antiserum. At week 2-3 post infection (p.i.) only a low activity was detected. Therefore, an alternative approach was used in which TNF production was measured ex vivo. Monocytes from T. vivax IL2337-infected cattle manifested a strong TNF production which peaked… CONTINUE READING
