Corynebacterium parvum can reverse the depression of macrophage hydrogen peroxide production caused by erythrocyte phagocytosis.

Our previous studies have shown that the phagocytosis of IgG-coated erythrocytes (EIgG) in vivo increases the mortality rate with bacterial infection, and EIgG phagocytosis in vitro depresses phorbol myristate acetate (PMA)-triggered H2O2 production. The present study was undertaken to determine if the depression of H2O2 production caused by EIgG… (More)
