  • Human normal peripheral blood mononuclear cells were stimulated with lipid A (LA), the biologically active moiety of bacterial lipopolysaccharides. LA-activated supernatants were able to suppress polymorphonuclear cell (PMN) phagocytosis of Candida albicans. This inhibitory activity was enhanced by the supplementation of male inhibitory material (MIM) to active supernatants. The addition of a recombinant human anti-interleukin-1 beta monoclonal antibody to activated supernatants in the absence… CONTINUE READING
