Evidence continues to accumulate on the importance of neutrophils (PMNs) and phagocytes in the causation of tissue and endothelial injury that frequently accompanies the inflammatory response. Increased production of superoxide anions in combination with decreased endothelial antioxidant activity may contribute to the development of vascular disease including atherosclerosis, vasospasm, diabetic vascular complications, tissue damage in ischemia-reperfusion, and hypotension. Free radicals… Expand
Diversity of endotoxin-induced nitrotyrosine formation in macrophage-endothelium-rich organs.
TLDR
This study investigated the distribution of nitrotyrosine and other pathological changes induced by LPS in rat liver, spleen, and lung, all of which are rich in macrophages and endothelial cells and revealed a denitration activity in spleen white pulp might play a key role to protect the areas from nitration. Expand
Differential contribution of neutrophilic granulocytes and macrophages to nitrosative stress in a host-parasite animal model.
TLDR
An evolutionary conservation in modern bony fish of the function of neutrophilic granulocytes and macrophages in the nitration process is suggested and the common carp is supported as a suitable animal model for investigations on nitrosative stress in host-parasite interactions. Expand
The use of flow cytometry to measure neutrophil function.
TLDR
The use of flow cytometry is discussed to assess neutrophil functional responses including calcium mobilization, F-actin assembly, adhesion, aggregation, degranulation, phagocytosis and reactive oxygen species (ROS) production. Expand
Neutrophil priming in host defense: role of oxidants as priming agents.
TLDR
This review describes key features of the priming response in host defense and disease pathogenesis and focuses on the unique role of reactive oxygen species as priming agents. Expand
Oxygen Free Radicals and the Systemic Inflammatory Response
TLDR
This review focuses on progress in the understanding the different actions of free radicals at the sequential stages of the development of the systemic inflammatory response. Expand
Evaluation of assays for the measurement of bovine neutrophil reactive oxygen species.
TLDR
This is the first study to evaluate DHE, MCLA, Amplex Red, and isoluminol-based assays for the measurement of bovine neutrophil ROS, and the most comprehensive comparative study of ROS assays under similar experimental conditions. Expand
Attenuation of the oxidative burst-induced DNA damage in human leukocytes by hyaluronan.
Oxidative burst provides the mechanism for specialized phagocytes, such as granulocytes or monocytes, to kill invading microorganisms through generation of superoxide anions. However, the oxidantsExpand
Plasma complement C5 protects endothelial cells from polymorphonuclear neutrophil-derived, H2O2-mediated cytotoxicity.
TLDR
The data suggest that the protection of EC against hydrogen peroxide-mediated damage is partly mediated through complement component C5. Expand
A Differential Concentration-Dependent Effect of IVIg on Neutrophil Functions: Relevance for Anti-Microbial and Anti-Inflammatory Mechanisms
TLDR
Intravenous immunoglobulins appears to have differential, concentration-dependent effects on PMN, possibly supporting the use of IVIg as either an anti-microbial or anAnti-inflammatory agent. Expand
Cell death in the neighbourhood: direct microenvironmental effects of apoptosis in normal and neoplastic tissues
TLDR
It is proposed that apoptosis subserves several pro‐tumour functions—trophic, anti‐inflammatory, and immunomodulatory—and it is identified strategies targeting host responses to apoptotic cells as promising modes of future therapies that could be applied to multiple cancer types in which tumour‐cell apoptosis is active.

Granulocyte function in coronary artery disease.
TLDR
"Priming" of granulocytes in stable forms of coronary disease may predispose to the subsequent development of acute coronary events, whereas activation of neutrophils may lead to alterations in vascular permeability and coronary flow regulation, leading to further myocardial and endothelial injury in acute myocardIAL infarction, unstable angina and coronary angioplasty. Expand
Granulocytes and Myocardial Ischemia
TLDR
The mechanism by which neutrophils may contribute to ischemia-induced myocardial injury and disfunction is discussed and attention will be placed on the potential role of neutrophil-derived mediators in the injurious process, in particular, the metabolites of arachodonic acid and the oxygen derived free radicals. Expand
Role of granulocytes in endothelial injury in coronary heart disease in humans.
TLDR
Experimental and clinical studies to elucidate the potential role of leukocytes, oxygen radicals, leukotrienes and granulocyte enzymes in pathophysiology of myocardial injury due to a regional ischemia and reperfusion is an area of intense investigation. Expand
Leukocytes, oxygen radicals, and myocardial injury due to ischemia and reperfusion.
TLDR
The results suggest that oxygen radicals released by activated neutrophils play a role in the pathophysiology of myocardial injury due to ischemia followed by reperfusion. Expand
Membrane Glycoproteins in Superoxide Release from Neutrophils
Neutrophils are the cells generally considered to be the first line of defence against invading microorganisms. Stimulation of their surface receptors activates a repertoire of killing functions asExpand
New trends in coronary artery disease: the role of granulocyte activation.
TLDR
The aggregation assay supported the potential role of granulocytes in neutrophil-endothelial interactions and tissue damage, and the results about oxidase activity and superoxide release suggested the possible role for neutrophIL-derived oxygen radicals in the pathogenesis of vascular injury in vivo.

The Pathophysiology of Phagocytes
TLDR
Phagocytes, which usually function as the primary defender in infections, have also been implicated as effector cells in several conditions characterized by a destructive inflammatory response. Expand

WITH increasing frequency, the human neutrophil is being implicated as a mediator of tissue-destructive events in inflammatory diseases ranging from rheumatoid arthritis and myocardial reperfusionExpand
Cholesterol and atheroma lipids activate complement and stimulate granulocytes. A possible mechanism for amplification of ischemic injury in atherosclerotic states.
TLDR
Exposure of plasma to crystalline cholesterol by ulceration of, or hemorrhage into, atherosclerotic plaques might therefore activate C in vivo, promoting further ischemic damage by causing leukostatic-leukoembolic compromise of small vessels downstream from the site of activation. Expand
