Paper Abstract

A comparative study on phagocytosis of P. Aeruginosa by human neutrophils in diabetic patients and healthy volunteers was carried out by means of the monolayer of neutrophils in optical microscopy and ultrastructural observation in electronic microscopy. The results demonstrated that the level of phagocytosis in diabetics is lower than health people. The impairment in phagocytosis of neutrophils may be the important cause of severe and repeated infection in diabetic patients.
