Effect of CD4 monoclonal antibody in vivo on lesion development, delayed-type hypersensitivity and interleukin 3 production in experimental murine cutaneous leishmaniasis.

Abstract:

Highly susceptible BALB/c mice subjected to adult thymectomy followed by prolonged (15 weeks), twice-weekly injections of a low dose (100 micrograms) of CD4 monoclonal antibody (MoAb) develop resistance to otherwise uniformly fatal and disseminating Leishmania major infection. In contrast, similar treatment with CD8 MoAb has no effect on the course of L. major infection. CD4 MoAb administered after the lesion establishment also has no effect. Mice which become resistant following CD4 MoAb tre...
