Lesion progression in vaccinated BALB/c mice after challenge with 106 L. major metacyclic enriched promastigotes. Each experiment is repeated three times. Results of the 3 experiments (10 mice per group) pooled together are expressed as increases in footpad thickness (in millimetres) and are means + S.D. F2: mice pre-immunized with SGH of female P. papatasi (F2) and challenged with L. major co-inoculated with the same type of SGH; F3: mice pre-immunized with SGH of female P. papatasi (F3) and challenged with L. major co-inoculated with the same type of SGH; F4: mice pre-immunized with SGH of female P. papatasi (F4) and challenged with L. major co-inoculated with the same type of SGH; F5: mice pre-immunized with SGH of female P. papatasi (F5) and challenged with L. major co-inoculated with the same type of SGH; F6: mice pre-immunized with SGH of female P. papatasi (F6) and challenged with L. major co-inoculated with the same type of SGH; F14: mice pre-immunized with SGH of female P. papatasi (F14) and challenged with L. major co-inoculated with the same type of SGH;
