The stimulatory effects of levamisole on macrophages may be particularly important because Brucella species tend to be an intracellular pathogen and macrophages are thought to be important in host defense in bovine brucellosis. [26] The positive effect of levamisole given on day 7 may be due to the fact that helper cells function is maximal at that time.
