Blast transformation in different stages of cutaneous leishmaniasis. Academic Article uri icon


  • Abstract Lymphoblast transformation was studied in patients with cutaneous leishmaniasis, in immune donors with scars of leishmanial lesions and in normal control subjects. Lymphocytes from immune donors and from some of the patients were stimulated by extracts of Leishmania tropica. The test can be used as a measure of immunity and may, in certain circumstances, be of help in differential diagnosis.
