Abstract

Abstract

Cultured was retarded in intraerythrocytic development by serum from malaria-immune adults, by human TB serum, and by rabbit tumor necrosis serum. Neither the potency nor efficacy of any of these sera was altered by a variety of antioxidants or oxygen-free radial scavengers, including ascorbate, α-tocopherol, BHT, cystine or cyteine, glutathione, histidine, phenylalanine, tryptophan, tyrosine, superoxide dismutase, catalase (or combination of the two enzymes), or by reducing the ambient O tension to 1%. It is thus unlikely that the antiparasitic activity of these inhibitory sera can be attributed to oxidative mechanisms.
