Figure 2: Kinetics of total peritoneal exudate cells (PECs) recovered from the peritoneum after T. crassiceps infection. (a) Peritoneal cells were isolated from male and female BALB/c at 6 days after infection with twenty cysticerci. Without any additional stimulation, the cells were processed for flow cytometry and analyzed. (b) Flow cytometry analysis shows that macrophages (F4/) are recruited within 6days p.i. (d.p.i.). (c) Increased numbers are detected per individual associated to sex as infection progresses peritoneal exudate cells.
