Experimental models of Pneumocystis carinii infections



Experimental models of Pneumocystis carinii infections



Pneumocystis carinii pneumonia Pathogenesis, diagnosis, treatment Lung Biology in Health and Disease, vol 22: 7-76



This well illustrated second chapter of the book describes the development of animal models for P. carinii infection, recent studies in corticosteroid-treated rats, experimental infection in mice (including athymic (nude) mice) and other laboratory animals, purification of P. carinii, and immunological studies. It is concluded that at present there is no experimental animal that can be reliably infected with exogenous Pneumocystis stages.
