The original Westergren blood sedimentation technique was modified to assess leukocyte sedimentation properties. The relative change of leukocyte and erythrocyte counts was measured in the upper half section of blood column in vertically positioned sedimentation tubes in 10-minute-intervals for 60 minutes. During the first 20 minutes of gravity(More)
Peripheral blood leucocytes and their phagocytosis-associated metabolic activity were studied in 65 patients after elective surgery representing similar degrees of surgical trauma. Halothane (group A) or neurolept (group B) anaesthesia were given to 50 patients. Fifteen patients had extradural blockade only (group C). Leucocytosis was observed immediately(More)
The effect of Ca-antagonist, long-acting verapamil and the selective beta-1 blocking bisoprolol were investigated and compared in the secondary prevention after myocardial infarction. Eighty-seven patients were enrolled, 27 patients were not included because of the exclusion criteria, 30 patients were treated with verapamil and 30 patients with bisoprolol.(More)
Abnormal white blood cell rheological behaviour has been implicated as a cause of blood flow disturbances under conditions of ischaemia and reduced perfusion pressure. Accordingly, we have tested the mechanical properties of white cells following myocardial infarction by measuring the rate at which suspension of these cells cause plugging of Nuclepore(More)
We studied the adaptation of a filtration instrument to an assay for cell migration experiments. The commercially available Nuclepore filter holders were modified so that isolated human polymorphonuclear leucocytes (PMNs) were allowed to penetrate a porous filter membrane and to enter a compartment under the membrane. The total number of PMNs which had(More)
