Superoxide anion release from blood and bone marrow neutrophils is altered by endotoxemia.


In vivo endotoxin infusion produces neutrophil-mediated acute lung injury and increases superoxide anion release from phorbol myristate acetate (PMA)-stimulated blood neutrophils collected 18-24 hours after the infusion. Because the turnover time of circulating blood neutrophils is only 6-8 hours, it was hypothesized that the prolonged increase in… (More)
