Use of a bovine model to study the role of adhesion molecule CD11/CD18 in hemodialysis-induced neutropenia.


The early neutropenia that occurs with cellulose-based dialysis membranes is believed to result from a cascade of immune events: complement activation, engagement of leukocyte adhesion molecules, cytokine release, and leukocyte sequestration. The beta2 integrin CR3 (CD11b/CD18) is upregulated during hemodialysis, binds complement factor iC3b, and mediates… (More)
