Abstract

Parasitemia counts established that 22°C-acclimated mice subjected to cold exposure for a short time (-35°C for 30 min) during infection had significantly higher parasitemia levels than parasitized mice continuously housed at 22°C. Parasitized 5°C-acclimated mice also demonstrated higher parasitemia levels than parasitized 22°C-acclimated mice. There was no correlation between plasma free fatty acid (PFFA) concentration and parasitemia in mice infected with . The effect of clofibrate (an agent known to reduce PFFA levels in rats) in reducing PFFA levels in mice was inconclusive. However, the -infected mice treated with clofibrate demonstrated significantly lower parasitemia when compared to parasitized mice that were not treated with clofibrate.
