Bronchial wash and bronchoalveolar lavage were performed in 12 healthy subjects (five smokers), in order to elucidate whether or not material of neutrophil origin may be phagocytized by lung macrophages in vivo. Cells from different levels in the bronchial tree were obtained by sequential injection and subsequent aspiration of either four 50-ml or five 10-ml aliquots. Each aliquot was used for the determination of total and differential cell counts. The proportion of myeloperoxidase-positive… CONTINUE READING
