Abstract

The two most prominent types of phagocytic cells in the human circulation are the neutrophilic granulocytes and the monocytes. Both cell types are involved in host defense by their ability to move into the tissues to the site of an infection, to bind to foreign material, to ingest it, and to kill living microorganisms. The latter reaction is mediated to a large extent by the formation of toxic oxygen radicals.
