Changes in granulocyte chemiluminescence and plasma fibronectin concentrations following major blunt trauma.

Abstract

Chemiluminescence activity of granulocytes in phagocytosis of zymosan and Escherichia coli and their responses to chemoattractant N-formylmethionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP) were evaluated in 13 major blunt trauma patients (Injury Severity Score 31 +/- 6) and their plasma fibronectin concentrations were measured. Chemiluminescence responses to zymosan and… (More)
