Probiotic supplementation was also responsible for enhanced phagocytic
activity in both saline-injected and carragenin-injected fish.
Ellis et al (1976) observed that the fixed and free phagocytic
cells are involved in the clearance of colloidal carbon from the blood of plaice; it is therefore an active process.
Spirulina platensis exposure enhances macrophage phagocytic
function in cats.
Concerning the effect of EMF on immune parameters, present data showed that EMF exposure increased serum total protein levels, gamma, and total globulins, phagocytosis % and phagocytic
index in mice.
and oxidative burst activity of chicken thrombocytes to Salmonella, Escherichia coli and other bacteria.
Examination of newly forming, prephagocytic lesions suggests that oligodendrocyte death underpins the subsequent events that manifest pathologically as active demyelination; and that macrophage activity, widely held to be driven by a Th1 lymphocyte-mediated immune response toward a myelin antigen, is largely a scavenger response determined by the expression of phagocytic
ligands on the plasma membranes of dying oligodendrocytes.
action of eosinophils is not a normal function of these cells, and we found only one report of a bactericide action of eosinophils (Persson et al.

For example, deep-seated Staphylococcus aureus infections suggest a phagocytic
In normal hosts, a phagocytic
response to colonization prevents infection.
The second half of the book provides information on bone, salivary glands, oral somatosensory systems, muscle, cartilage, temporomandibular joint, immune system, and phagocytic
