  1. 1. Neutrophil chemotaxis. Analyses of neutrophil chemotaxis i a new fluid gradient chamber

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Reza Ebrahimzadeh Pirshahid; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cell movement; Chemotaxis; Leukocyte; Neutrophil; Human; Filter; Methods; N-Formylmethionine-Leucyl-Phenylalanine; Normal distribution; Partial differential equation;

    Abstract : The leukocytes have, as part of their function in immune system, the ability to leave the bloodstream, penetrate the vascular wall and migrate towards extravascular targets. This behaviour of the leukocytes has been extensively studied both in vivo and in vitro since the 19th century but the mechanisms underlying leukocyte migration are not yet fully understood.
