A radiometric assay is described for measuring phagocytosis and intracellular killing of Staphylococcus epidermidis by peritoneal cells from continuous ambulatory peritoneal dialysis (CAPD) patients. Using this method it is possible to determine simultaneously and independently, in a single assay, whether peritoneal cells from CAPD patients possess defects… CONTINUE READING
