Phagocytic activity of leukocytes in blood was examined in 70 patients with diabetes mellitus. 40 of them had insulin-dependent diabetes--(IDDM) or type I, while there were 30 patients with noninsulin-dependent diabetes (NIDDM) or type II. Phagocytic activity of leukocytes was determined by quantitative method of ingestion, on the principle of quantifying phagocytized fungi (Saccharomyces cerevisiae) and free phagocytes (nonphagocytizing leukocytes) by means of a phase-contrast microscope.
