Neutrophils from a patient with recurrent pyogenic infections since infancy were found to have morphologic abnormalities and impaired functions. The neutrophils had an abnormal nuclear shape, no or few secondary granules, and no alkaline phosphatase activity. Primary granules were normal in number and structure, and were positive for peroxidase. Immature(More)
In order to obtain further knowledge of chronic neutropenia of childhood, we studied nine neutropenic infants six to ten months of age by in vitro techniques, including bone marrow culture, electron microscopy, and chemotaxis assay. Eight of the nine patients had a benign clinical course and the bone marrow aspirates showed a reduced number of segmented(More)
Clinical studies were done on a patient with Chediak-Higashi syndrome (CHS) with special emphasis on the accelerated phase. In order to obtain further information on the accelerated phase, haematopoiesis was studied by bone marrow culture techniques. The patient was placed on ascorbic acid therapy but she entered the accelerated phase, although the therapy(More)
A boy with recurrent pyogenic infection was found to have occasional neutropenia, defective neutrophil chemotaxis, hypogammaglobulinemia with increased IgM, and impaired cellular immunity. The T and B lymphocytes were defective in IgG production in vitro. Ultrastructure of the neutrophils was normal. The marrow cells formed normal numbers of granulocytic(More)
There have been several reported studies on the distribution and/or toxicity of nanosilica particles. However, the influence of these particles on blood vessels through which they are distributed is poorly understood. Hence, we investigated the effects of nano- and micromaterials on blood vessel shrinkage and relaxation. Nanosilica particles with diameters(More)
A male infant with transient severe neutropenia and defective neutrophilic mobility is described. He had recurrent upper respiratory infections that responded well to antibiotics. The neutrophilic counts continued to be less than 300/cu mm, and neutrophilic random mobility and chemotaxis were persistently defective during early infancy but were normal at 16(More)
