[Changes in the phagocytic activity of the peritoneal macrophages of white mice caused by alcoholic intoxication].

Observations made on white mice showed that doses of alcohol had a stimulating effect on the indices of macrophage acitivity (pagocytic number and phagocytic index), while longer administration of 40% ethyl alcohol solution (in doses of 0,1 ml for 21--30 days) suppressed the functional activity of macrophages. In vitro experiments in which macrophages were… CONTINUE READING
