Human monocytes tolerant to LPS retain the ability to phagocytose
bacteria and generate reactive oxygen species.
With increased [[lambda].sub.z], there would be more macrophages to phagocytose
and clear the rapidly growing density of blood schizonts.
aged or damaged erythrocytes, recycling the iron contained in heme using heme oxygenase 1 to release the iron  (Figure 1).
Neutrophils, or polymorphonuclear leukocytes, play an important role in host defense against bacterial or fungal pathogens due to their ability to penetrate into infected tissue and phagocytose
and kill microbes.
Holmes, "Alveolar macrophages from subjects with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease are deficient in their ability to phagocytose
apoptotic airway epithelial cells," Immunology & Cell Biology, vol.
Selective laser trabeculoplasty (SLT) stimulates macrophages in the drainage angle to phagocytose
debris in the angle.
Probably because of this alteration in the macrophage phenotype, s[PLA.sub.2]-V-null macrophages have a reduced ability to phagocytose
Neutrophils are known to phagocytose
red cells infected with malarial parasites (24).
Animal studies have shown that chronic alcohol exposure causes significant alveolar macrophage dysfunction, leaving these normally active immune cells poorly equipped to phagocytose
or kill invading organisms (Brown et al.
Because there has been no evidence that anti-VEGF drugs modify the function of macrophages and microglia which can phagocytose
debris and red blood cells, one can only postulate that ranibizumab does not facilitate the absorption of intraretinal hemorrhage directly but rather suppresses new bleeding and thus seemingly accelerates absorption .
The bacteria reach the alveoli in the lungs, where the alveolar macrophages phagocytose
Unlike post-AFs treated necrotic PMN, neutrophils exposed to mix of [AFB.sub.1] and [AFM.sub.1] were less efficient to phagocytose
and kill S.
After activation, those cells quickly change to phagocytose
any unwanted particles and secrete more proinflammatory cytokines to facilitate an immune response .
Neutrophils are rapidly recruited to the site of Leishmania infection and phagocytose
the parasites [20, 21].
But the neutrophils are unable to phagocytose
and degrade the bacilli.
