    The article reports that interleukins have no effect on penetration, replication or cytogenesis of Toxoplasma gondii. Progniaud strain in human astrocytes in vitro do not antagonize the role of interleukins on cytogenesis. The cytokine is also important at the early stage when it downregulates...

    Rats are naturally resistant to Toxoplasma gondii infection, particularly the RH strain, while mice are not. Previous studies have demonstrated that inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and arginase-1 of rodent peritoneal macrophages are linked to the mechanism of resistance. As an increasing...
