Alveolar macrophage (AM) opsonin-independent phagocytosis may be an important process by which bacteria are cleared from the airspaces. Although it has been shown that clearance of bacteria from the lung is altered in association with endotoxemia, the effect of endotoxemia on opsonin-independent phagocytosis is unknown. Because alterations in AM opsonin… CONTINUE READING
