Prevention of recrudescent malaria in nude mice by thymic grafting or by treatment with hyperimmune serum.

Nude mice died when infected with the normally avirulent malarial parasite Plasmodium berghei yoelii. Furthermore, malaria recrudesced in Nu/Nu mice after the termination of acute disease by treatment with clindamycin. Recrudescence was not observed in Nu/Nu mice that had been grafted with thymic tissue or treated with hyperimmune serum. Mice mad B cell deficient by treatment with anti-mu-chain serum also died when infected with P. berghei yoelii. The data suggest that a crucial role of the thymus in preventing recrudescent malaria in this model system is to provide a helper function in the production of protective antibody.[1]
