Cell-mediated immunity to Toxoplasma gondii establishes and maintains a balanced host-pathogen relationship. Recent analyses using spontaneous and genetically engineered mouse mutants have yielded a clearer picture of factors positively and negatively regulating the host immune response and a better understanding of cytokine-inducible intracytoplasmic mechanisms that lead to intracellular pathogen suppression and demise.
