Peritoneal mouse macrophages activated in vitro with recombinant murine gamma interferon (10 ng/ml) or in vivo (10 μg per mouse) showed a significant decrease in the growth and yield of Chlamydia trachomatis. The restriction of the growth of C. trachomatis paralleled the expression of Ia(d) on the macrophages. Mice that received macrophages activated in vitro with recombinant murine gamma interferon showed a significant decrease in the yield of chlamydial infection-forming units from their spleens and peritoneal fluids.
