Table 2 Superoxide release by MN cells at different incubation times (mean ± SD, N = 10 in each treatment)

From: The effect of IFN-γ and TGF-β in the functional activity of mononuclear cells in the presence of Entamoeba histolytica

Groups Superoxide Release (nmol)
MN Cells 3.6 ± 0.4
MN Cells + E.histolytica 8.6 ± 0.5a
MN Cells + E. histolytica + IFN-γ 9.3 ± 0.9a
MN Cells + E. histolytica + TGF-β 8.2 ± 0.8a
  1. MN cells were treated with cytokines or untreated, in the presence or absence of E. histolytica
  2. aIndicates statistically significant differences between MN cells treated with cytokines or left untreated and incubated with parasites and the control (without parasite)
