Abstract

Many authors have studied the phagocytosis of mono-cultures by leucocytes (1,2,3,5). In a clinical setting infections caused by mixed culture could occur. We were thus interested in studying phagocytic activity of human granulocytes against cultures containing gram-negative and gram-positive organisms.
