ABSTRACT
The article cites a study that investigated the effects of early host response upon initial Tritrichomonas foetus colonization in the murine reproductive tract. The main objective of the study was to determine how the innate immune response affects the colonization process and which immune response maybe important during the initial infection. Moreover, the researchers compared parasite burden and severe combined immunodeficiency mice to the parasite burden of immune competent mice.
