Effect of tear secretory IgA on chemotaxis of polymorphonuclear leucocytes.

Abstract

PURPOSE The aim of the present study was to examine the effect of tear and purified colostrum secretory IgA (sIgA) on polymorphonuclear leucocyte (PMN) chemotaxis. METHODS The chemotactic effect of tear and purified sIgA for PMN was studied using a modified Boyden chamber. Tears treated with anti-human IgA, complement-inactivated tears and albumin were… (More)
