Alteration in density of eosinophils in the cerebrospinal fluid of mice infected with Angiostrongylus cantonensis.
Int J Parasitol. 1990 Aug; 20(5):681-3.IJ

Abstract

The density of eosinophils in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) and blood of male ddY mice infected with Angiostrongylus cantonensis was examined on days 14, 20 and 27 post-infection (p.i.) with discontinuous Percoll gradient centrifugation. Normal blood eosinophils had a density of between 1.070 and 1.080 g ml-1. No significant changes in density in blood eosinophils were noted during the course of the observations. CSF eosinophils began to become hypodense (defined as density less than 1.070 g ml-1) on day 20 p.i., and 88% of eosinophils were hypodense on day 27. Our results suggest therefore that eosinophils probably become hypodense in the CSF and brain tissues, but not in the blood.
