[Changes in the leukocyte phagocytic activity of donor blood after its UV irradiation. II. Simulation of the effect of the autotransfusion of UV-irradiated blood].

[Article in Russian]


The UV-irradiated blood of healthy adults was supplemented with non-irradiated blood in the ratio 1:10. The phagocytic activity (PhA) of monocytes and granulocytes was seen to increase markedly in the whole mixture of blood. In this case the rise of PhA was pronounced 1.4-1.7 times as much as in the case of the non-supplemented, directly UV-irradiated blood. The enhancement of PhA depends on its initial level and may occur simultaneously with structural changes of the cell surface components. It seems reasonable to propose that PhA stimulation may be one of the earliest mechanisms in immunocorrection by UV-irradiated blood therapy.
