Susceptibility to tuberculosis: clues from studies with inbred and outbred New Zealand White rabbits

Infection and Immunity

Abstract

The rabbit model of tuberculosis (TB) is important because rabbits develop a disease that is similar to TB in humans, namely, granulomas with caseous necrosis, liquefaction, and cavities. We describe here a comparison of inbred and outbred New Zealand White rabbits infected by aerosol w...read more

Delayed Hypersensitivity

Delayed hypersensitivity reactions are inflammatory reactions initiated by mononuclear leukocytes. Delayed hypersensitivity is a major mechanism of defense against various intracellular pathogens, including mycobacteria, fungi, and certain parasites, and it occurs in transplant rejection and tumor immunity.
