Glucose added to the medium was found to enhance superoxide production by isolated circulating neutrophils from both diabetic and normal subjects, but quantitatively the enhancement decreased from 4 to 50 mmole/liter. Galactose up to 50 mmole/liter had no effect on superoxide production in cells from the control subjects, but appeared to depress it in those… CONTINUE READING
