Rat pulmonary alveolar macrophages (PAM) were compared with peripheral blood neutrophils for their ability to killEscherichia coli andStaphylococcus aureus in vitro. A wide range of opsonic conditions were studied, including from 10 to 40% autologous serum, alveolar lavage fluid (ALF), concentrated ALF supernatant, and several bacterial preopsonization… CONTINUE READING
