Increased production of oxidative metabolites following interaction between mononuclear phagocytes and soluble stimuli can be measured as luminol-amplified chemiluminescence (CL). The effects of superoxide dismutase (SOD), catalase, and azide on the monocyte CL response were investigated. Azide, a myeloperoxidase (MPO) inhibitor, reduced the CL reaction by… CONTINUE READING
