Neutrophil Bactericidal Dysfunction towards Oxidant Radical-sensitive Microorganisms during Experimental Iron Deficiency

Abstract

We developed a clear-cut nutritional iron deficiency anemia without concomittant malnutrition in rats given a low iron diet, and we restored normal iron and hemoglobin levels in these same animals with iron dextran injections. The neutrophil function studies performed during and after a period of iron deficiency showed the following: Phagocytosis of… (More)
