Inhibition of VCAM-1 expression in endothelial cells by reconstituted high density lipoproteins.
Plasma-derived high density lipoproteins (HDL) were found to inhibit cytokine-induced expression of endothelial cell adhesion molecules. Here we used apolipoprotein-specific reconstituted HDL (rHDL)Expand

A rapid evaluation of phagocytosis and killing of Candida albicans by CD13+ leukocytes.
Flow cytometry can be adopted for routine monitoring of the immune functions of human polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNs) in several disease states. We recently developed a rapid and reproducibleExpand
