Inhibition of polymorphonuclear leukocyte-mediated cytotoxicity by hydrocortisone "in vitro".


The effect of hydrocortisone (HC) on in vitro human polymorphonuclear leukocyte cytotoxicity was studied. HC was able to inhibit reversibly and in a dose-dependent way the antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (ADCC) and the phytohemagglutinin-dependent cellular cytotoxicity (PDCC). The killing defect was partially overcome by increasing the antibody or… (More)
