Effect of lupane on the development of Leishmania (L.) amazonensis within peritoneal macrophage. Infected mouse peritoneal macrophages were treated with 109 μM of lupane or 546,5 μM of Glucantime® for up to 96 h. The survival index (a) and the number of intracellular amastigotes (b) was determined at the indicated times. Each bar represents the mean ± standard error of at least three independent experiments, which were performed in duplicate. Statistically significant differences (p ≤ 0.05) between treated and non-treated groups are indicated by (*)
