Figure 3

Effect of infection on BMMØ and BMDC cytokine production. After 4 h of infection with L. infantum, cells were cultured in the presence or absence of LPS (1 μg/ml) and levels of (A) IL-12p40 and (B) IL-10 in 24 h culture supernatants were quantified by ELISA. One representative experiment of three is shown. The mean ± SD are shown. *P <0.05 indicates significant differences between BCN150 and the other isolates; ns, not significant.
