Changes in superoxide anion production and phagocytosis by circulating neutrophils during tumor progression in a rat model.


The functional state of circulating neutrophils was monitored in a rat model of mesoblastic nephroma during tumor progression. Superoxide anion (O2.-) production in response to PMA and phagocytosis of yeast particles (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) were measured every second day after tumor cell implantation. Both phagocytosis and PMA-induced 02.- generation… (More)
