Extracorporeal circulation during open-heart surgery may damage cellular and humoral factors in the blood. Phagocytic functions of circulating polymorphonuclear leukocytes were investigated in 10 patients 1 day before, then 1 hour, 2, 4 and 10 days after open-heart surgery. Transient diminutions in the phagocytic capacity of polymorphs was found for(More)
Enhanced phagocytosis and no intracellular glycogen breakdown was found in guinea-pig peritoneal polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) incubated together with heat-killed staphylococci (Twort) treated with a calf thymus histone fraction (P II), for 1 hr at 37 degrees C. Glcose consumption and lactate production of these PMN's were as high as in phagocytosis of(More)
One-hundred eighty-seven bacterial strains were tested by the two-disk-agar diffusion method for the interaction between N-formimidoyl thienamycin and aztreonam, ticarcillin and ticarcillin-clavulanic acid. An antagonism between N-formimidoyl thienamycin and the other 3 beta-lactams was noted in half of the evaluable tests, especially against Pseudomonas,(More)
