Comparison of the in vitro effects of amoxicillin and ampicillin on the polymorphonuclear neutrophil respiratory burst.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The aim was to compare the in vitro effects of amoxicillin and ampicillin on the oxidative metabolism of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs). METHODS Superoxide radical anion production by PMNs, stimulated or not by various exogenous stimulants and in contact with increasing antibiotic concentrations, was measured using spectrophotometric… (More)
