Neutrophils are essential for host defense against Staphylococcus aureus infections. Although significant progress has been made, our understanding of neutrophil interactions with S.
aureus remains incomplete. To provide a more comprehensive view of this process, we investigated phagocytosis and killing of S. aureus by human neutrophils using varied assay conditions in :// Phagocytosis and intracellular killing of Staphylococcus aureus by bovine blood polymorphonuclear leukocytes after migration in vitro.
Niemiałtowski M, Targowski SP. Phagocytic activity and intracellular killing of opsonized staphylococci (Smith strain) by bovine blood polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMNL) was studied after their migration in When treated with mAb 3B3, staphylococci appeared to be internalized by mouse neutrophils (Fig.
5 G). Mouse blood was infected with S. aureus and analyzed for CFU after 30 and 60 min incubation. Compared with mock control, mAb 3B3 promoted phagocytic killing of staphylococci.

The highly encapsulated type 1 strain was killed by phagocytic cells after incubation with homologous antiserum. In contrast, the microencapsulated do not have the same phagocytic capacity (attach-Receivedforpublication 3 November ment and ingestion) as neutrophils. According to Steigbigel et al.
(), the rate of killing once the bacteria had been ingested was similar for both leucocyte populations. Peterson et al. (), how-ever, found that the rate of killing by MNs was slower capacities of mononuclear phagocytic cells.
The data obtained by varying the initial level of infection indicate that the number of ingested bacteria may subsequently alter the kinetics of intracellular killing. In vitro maturation of macrophages in culture was also found to exert a pronounced effect on the kinetics ofbacterial death.

Since the introduction of antibiotics in medical practice in the s, methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA) strains have been emerging in various parts of the world.

Extracellular and bacterial factors influencing staphylococcal phagocytosis and killing by human polymorphonuclear Extracellular slime (Ecs) from three strains of Staphylococcus epidermidis was prepared and added to fresh suspensions of polymorphonuclear neutrophils.
Phagocytic ingestion and killing of opsonised and unopsonised S. epidermidis strains was assessed over time using slide preparations stained by the Gram's method and microbiological culture. Both phagocytic ingestion and killing were Over 90% of the staphylococci were phagocyte associated after 30 to 60 min.
Killing rates were on the order of 66% +/- 12% and 80% +/- 7% after 1 and 2 h of incubation, :// Using an in vitro assay, we compared the opsonic requirements for phagocytic killing of prototype strains of encapsulated (type 1) and microencapsulated (type 5 and type 8) S.

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a frequent cause of lethal bloodstream infection; however, vaccines and antibody therapeutics targeting staphylococcal surface molecules have thus far failed to achieve clinical In addition, extracellular factors that might influence phagocytosis and killing were studied.
The method described gave highly reproducible results. No significant difference was observed in the phagocytic and killing functions of a single donor's PMNs and MNs when studied several times in one day and longitudinally over a period of weeks The phagocytosis and intracellular killing of different coagulasenegative staphylococcal species by polymorphonuclear (PMN) leukocytes from one healthy donor were compared.

Our studies, however, clearly demonstrate that purified HNP incubated with PMN severely compromised phagocytic killing of staphylococci when used at a concentration of 25 μg/ml for HNP2, a concentration determined by others to be toxic to eukaryotic cells, and at a concentration of 35 μg/ml for HNP1.
