Latest Neutrophil granulocyte Stories
It's a tragedy of war that innocent bystanders often get caught in the crossfire.
Scientists are learning how our immune system senses and tracks down infection in the body by responding to chemical "scents" emitted by bacteria.
Findings show that ancient 'enemies within' can mimic sepsis.
Scientists have long pondered the seeming contradiction that taking broad-spectrum antibiotics over a long period of time can lead to severe secondary bacterial infections.
A team led by Yale University scientists has developed a new approach to studying how immune cells chase down bacteria in our bodies.

Research led by Dr. Jay Kolls, Professor and Chairman of Genetics at LSU Health Sciences Center New Orleans, has identified a therapeutic target for acute lung injury resulting in acute respiratory distress syndrome, a highly fatal complication of influenza infection.
Scientists at the Burnham Institute for Medical Research in California say they've discovered reactive oxygen plays a key role in cancer metastasis. The researchers, led by Professor Sara Courtneidge, said they determined reactive species, such as superoxide and hydrogen peroxide, help form invadopodia -- cellular protrusions implicated in cancer cell migration.
