The 'metabolic burst' in polymorphonuclear leukocytes from patients with quiescent psoriasis.


We report an investigation of peripheral blood polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) from untreated patients with mild, quiescent psoriasis. Four aspects of the 'metabolic burst' were measured to illustrate phagocytosis-related events. These were: myeloperoxidase activity, hydrogen peroxide release, superoxide production and luminol-amplified chemiluminescence… (More)
