Trafficking of peritoneal cells during systemic candidiasis. Male Swiss mice were previously inoculated by intraperitoneal route with the fluorescent dye PKH-26 PCL and after 24 hours, the mice were intravenously challenged with 5 x 106C. albicans. After 24 and 48 hours and 7 days, the mice were euthanized and samples of peritoneal cells, brain, liver, kidney, lung and spleen were subjected to fluorescence analysis. PKH-26 PCL: red; DAPI: blue.
