The percentage of phagocytic
hemocytes also was significantly reduced with starvation.
Determine the role of free-living phagocytic
amoebae species on the prevalence, persistence, growth, and survival of OPPPs
These increases in phagocytic
activity characterized 100%-fed and 10%-fed mussels, in parallel, the mean number of ingested beads per hemocyte was stable throughout the experiment (P = 8.
Functional analysis of the innate immune system, including phagocytic
This can enhance the phagocytic
activity of white ceils in the wound bed.
in 1998, phagocytic
activities of PMNs intensify after both smoking and passive smoking.
Fish possess non specific defence mechanisms of invertebrates such as the phagocytic
mechanisms developed by macrophages and granular leucocytes and were the first animals to develop both cellular and humoral immune responses mediated by lymphocytes.
rhamnosus HN001 induced a similar increase in phagocytic
activity and Natural Killer cell activity as when the strain was consumed in reconstituted fat-free milk.
If pathogens reach the lower airways, including the alveoli, the next defense mechanism involves innate immune defenses that depend on the phagocytic
functions of alveolar macrophages and their interaction with secreted factors, including surfactant proteins.
The results revealed a clear enhancement of natural and acquired immunity through the activation of NK blood cells and an increase in phagocytic
Importance of SodC in protecting the pathogens against the superoxide radicals generated by inflammatory and phagocytic
cells during infections has been emphasized (32).
cells, such as macrophages, may be used as a biomarker of immunotoxicity in wildlife studies .
