Paper Abstract

The oxyradical production by leukocytes is crucial for killing invading bacteria, while it has been widely discussed as a tissue injuring factor. Despite such importance of the event, it is still unclear, probably because of lack of simple and reliable measurement methods, to what extent it varies among different subjects and either to what extent it is affected by environmental factors including diet. The present paper describes use of microfabricated channel arrays, that have been developed for use in studies of blood rheology, in the oxyradical measurement by chemiluminescence.
