Polymorphonuclear neutrophils function in splenectomized patients.


Some essential functions of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) were evaluated in 30 patients splenectomized because of rupture of the spleen. These cells revealed normal random migration, adherence, unstimulated O2- and H2O2 production. Phagocytosis of viable staphylococci was higher than in controls, whereas chemotaxis, bactericidal capacity, aggregation… (More)
