Abstract

Summary.

In human neutrophil monolayer assays the percentage phagocytosis of by neutrophils was found to be significantly lower (9%) than that for (37%). Both organisms required opsonisation with complement products for ingestion. The number of competent neutrophils phagocytosing was increased with: antisera specific to (49%); the neutrophil chemo-attractant formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (fmlp) (49%); mannan extracted from the cell wall of (72%); and a crude cell extract from (61%). In the case of all but one of these methods increased the proportion of phagocytosing neutrophils per slide. The data provide evidence for differences in quantitative phagocytosis of and and suggest that is resistant to phagocytosis .
