Abstract

We studied the influence of schistosomiasis and tuberculosis on the capacity of human monocytes to kill the invasive larval stage of Schistosoma mansoni. The mean killing of schistosomula by monocytes from 12 uninfected controls incubated in autologous plasma was 12 ± 1%; in control plasma it was 10 ± 1%, and in pooled immune plasma it was enhanced to 21 ± 1% (p
