 In order to determine the overall parasite burdens, an infection index value was calculated for each time after infection by multiplying the mean percentage of infected cells by the mean number of amastigotes per infected cell. The resulting values are expressed in arbitrary units. One representative experiment out of three is shown. The mean ± SD are shown. *P <0.05.
