Type of Research Project
- Basic science
What is the background of the project?
Investigation of Cytotoxicity in vitro in the new aminoquinolinic derivatives in amastigotes or promastigotes of Leishmania , as far as in macrophages. Study the effects in vivo of the aminoquinolinic derivatives in mices infected by P. berghei. Investigation of NO production which is induced by new aminoquinolinic derivatives in Leishmania e P. berghei; Furthermore it Will be studied the effects in vivo of this derivatives measured by NO e TNF-alfa produced by macrophages murine lineage , which are BCG-stimulated and Recombinant IFN gamma- stimulated.
