Transmigration of blood leukocytes into the peritoneal cavity is related to the upregulation of ICAM-1 (CD54) and Mac-1 (CD11b/CD18) adhesion molecules.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Migration of blood leukocytes into the peritoneal cavity of patients treated with peritoneal dialysis appears to be an important mechanism to prevent and fight peritonitis. To study the role of adhesion molecules in the process of leukocyte transmigration, we compared the expression of several adhesion receptors between peripheral blood monocytes… (More)
