Infusion of zymosan-activated plasma affects neutrophils in peripheral blood and bone marrow in sheep.

Intravenous infusion of zymosan-activated plasma (ZAP) in sheep results in acute lung injury mediated in part by free radical release from stimulated neutrophils that are retained in increased numbers in the pulmonary microcirculation. ZAP infusion is also associated with long-term reduction in elicited superoxide anion generation from segmented neutrophils… CONTINUE READING
