In vitro killing of Schistosomula of Schistosoma japonicum by human monocytes:An ultra-structural study.

Abstract

Preliminary findings showed that monolayers obtained from human peripheral mononuclear cells and pooled peritoneal exudate induced significant schistosomula killing. Likewise, macrophages from individually incubated schistosomula supernates of normal human monocytes were also found to kill incubated schistosomula. (Autor)
