638 Neutrophil Chemotaxis, Phagocytosis, and Bactericide Activity in Normal Volunteers Receiving Prednisone

Abstract

To evaluate the in vivo effect of prednisone on neutrophil (PMN) functions, prednisone (40 mg./day) was given orally for 3 days to 8 normal volunteers. PMN chemotaxis toward activated serum and PMN random migration were measured in modified Boyden chambers. NBT reduction after stimulation by phorbol myristate acetate was measured by use of flow… (More)
