In the present study, the restoration of immunity is characterized by rise in DTH response, HA titer and percentage neutrophil adhesion, phagocytic index
and lymphoid organ weights in CP induced immunosuppressed rats.
For abalone fed graded levels of vitamin [K.sub.1], there were no significant effects of temperature, vitamin [K.sub.1] inclusion level, or interaction between the two factors for total hemocyte count (Table 5; P = 0.677, P = 0.418, and P = 0.159, respectively; twofactor ANOVA), phagocytic activity (P = 0.344, P = 0.904, and P = 0.311, respectively) and phagocytic index
(P = 0.507, P = 0.713, and P = 0.455, respectively) (Table 5).
In present study, macrophage engulfment percentage and phagocytic index
were studied.The effect of colchicine on macrophages was observed.
Caption: FIGURE 2: The phagocytic index
of M[PHI] is increased when in coculture with aortic mesenchymal progenitor cells, mAo.
In addition both doses showed increased significant value (P<0.05) in phagocytic activity and phagocytic index
than the groups treated with Tonolest(r) probiotic and the control group from the 2nd week till 8th week (Fig.
###Clearance index (K) (Mean Phagocytic index
and Delayed Type Hypersensitivity Reaction.
Previous data has shown that the bacterial LPS caused an increase in reactive nitrogen intermediates (RNI), reactive oxygen species (ROS), and their phagocytic index
a statistically significant (p = 0.02 to 0.05) increase in phagocytic index
(1.43 [+ or -] 0.13 U) and the percentage of cells having performed phagocytosis (2.35 [+ or -] 0.41 U) compared to the physiological levels (1.1 [+ or -] 0.25 U and 1.75 [+ or -] 0.15 U) and the control group (1.1 [+ or -] 0.06 U and 1.85 [+ or -] 0.05 U), and to humoral immune dysfunction, 1.
As indicated in Table 4 and Figures 2-7, the percentage of phagocytosis and phagocytic index
were significantly (p<0.001) increased in EMF exposed mice for 30 days (Gp.
In addition to increasing the number of leukocytes, silver raises their "phagocytic index
"--the cells' ability to kill and digest pathogens by boosting the cells' production of hydrogen peroxide.
