Kinetics of the inflammatory infiltrate induced by Lutzomyia longipalpis saliva at the site of inoculation. BALB/c mice were inoculated intradermally within the ear dermis with half of the salivary gland extract (SGE) generated from the two salivary glands diluted in 10 μl of PBS (A) or a injection with PBS only (B). The leucocytes from three mouse ears/group were obtained at 0, 6, 12, 24 and 48 h after inoculation, and different populations were identified using flow cytometry. The data showed represent the mean ± SEM and are representative of three independent experiments (n = 3). *P < 0.05 compared to 0 hours (naive).
