This study was undertaken to investigate the effects of vanadium in the +2, +3, +4, and +5 valence states on superoxide generation, myeloperoxidase (MPO) activity, and hydroxyl radical formation by activated human neutrophils in vitro, using lucigenin-enhanced chemiluminescence (LECL), autoiodination, and electron spin resonance with(More)
The primary objective of the current study was to investigate possible relationships between calyculin A (CA)-mediated potentiation of nicotinamide adenine dinucleotide phosphate (NADPH) oxidase activity and inhibition of store-operated uptake of Ca2+ by chemoattractant-activated human neutrophils. Treatment of neutrophils with 100 nM CA, but not at lower(More)
Canova is an immunomodulatory, homeopathic preparation that has been shown to activate macrophages in vitro and in vivo, with resultant enhanced spreading of the cells and formation of microvillus extensions from the cell body. Since monocytes are the precursor cells of macrophages and dendritic cells, the objective of the current study was to investigate(More)
