Mice were infected with L. major in the footpad ( ) and after 6 and 11 weeks of infection animals were sacrificed and the lesions collected. Tissues were stained by TUNNEL, as described in Section 2. Apoptotic nuclei were counted and results expressed as apoptotic nuclei per 100 nuclei. Results represent the mean of 3–6 animals; six sections were counted per mouse.
