Resistance of Leishmania (Leishmania) amazonensis and Leishmania (Viannia) braziliensis to nitric oxide correlates with disease severity in Tegumentary Leishmaniasis



Bmc Infectious Diseases 7: 7



ISSN/ISBN: 1471-2334

PMID: 17316450

DOI: 10.1186/1471-2334-7-7

Background: Nitric oxide (NO.) plays a pivotal role as a leishmanicidal agent in mouse macrophages. NO. resistant Escherichia coli and Mycobacterium tuberculosis have been associated with a severe outcome of these diseases. Methods: In this study, the in vitro toxicity of nitric oxide against the promastigotes of Leishmania braziliensis and Leishmania amazonensis and the infectivity of amastigotes in human macrophages were evaluated.
