Abstract

These studies provide the first demonstration of the capacity of cells derived from normal human monocytes to kill a multicellular organism in a manner independent of specific antibody, C, and macrophage activation. This in vitro observation suggests that human monocytes and macrophages may contribute to innate resistance to infection with S. mansoni.
