Most parasitic skin infections are averted by very efficient strategies of preventing pathogen invasion. Innate immune cells such as mast cells, macrophages and dendritic cells are responsible for detecting parasites and for recruiting proinflammatory cells that help to contain and control the pathogen at sites of infection. This induces efficient adaptive… CONTINUE READING
