Our findings provided evidence to suggest the production of ROS during inflammatory response in septic patients as well as morphological alterations of erythrocytes during the inflammatory process, and that this modified cells are phagocytized
by macrophages and PMNs.
We have recently shown that wild-type GAS and rSpeB degraded C3b very efficiently, and that wild-type GAS was not mobilized to the infection site, whereas SpeB- GAS mutant was phagocytized
The microconidia are subsequently transformed into yeast, and due to the high phagocytic activity of the alveolar macrophages, they are phagocytized
And when lead-exposed erythrocytes were co-cultured with unexposed HK-2 cells, the HK-2 cells not only phagocytized
the erythrocytes, but also showed increased production of reactive oxygen species, diminished viability, and greater expression of genes associated with kidney damage.
After the coverslips fixation process, 200 macrophages were counted in duplicate for each bird to verify the number of macrophages with phagocytized
erythrocytes and the number of phagocytized
erythrocytes in each macrophage.
CHRONIC GRANULOMATOUS DISEASE: Is an X linked recessive disease characterized by inability of the leukocytes to lyse phagocytized
bacteria Patient with recurrent infection of liver, lungs, bone, lymph nodes often due to S.
Macrophages were highly vacuolated and frequently contained phagocytized
debris or leukocytophagia.
Inefficient recovery of iron from phagocytized
RBCs may also lead to iron deficiency in the body .
A morphologic study on the fate of ultrafine silver particles: distribution pattern of phagocytized
metallic silver in vitro and in vivo.
Clinical evidence demonstrates that asbestos fibers less than or equal to 3 millimicrons long are phagocytized
by alveolar macrophages.
In turn, these parasite infected erythrocytes are phagocytized
by the leukocytes, thus subsequently eliminated.
This assay measures the fluorescence of phagocytized
fluorescently labeled Vibrio bacteria.
In addition, as already noted by Matushima and Mariano (1996) on the function of thrombocytes in defense, it is probable that selenate acts a foreign substance to be phagocytized
, and other defense cells such as monocytes and neutrophils would be involved with thrombocytes, more aggressively than the lymphocytes.
The number of phagocytized
beads was counted using a compound microscope, and the feeding rate was determined by graphing the number of food vacuoles formed as a function of time.
The Gram stain, however, would show an abundance of inflammatory cells that have phagocytized
a wide assortment of morphotypes.
