Phagocytosis of Foreign Material in the Lung


, : Phagocytosis of Foreign Material in the Lung. Physiol Rev, 21: 112-139

A review of the literature shows that while the process of phagocytosis represents the most effective means possessed by the body for the disposal of foreign matter which has penetrated into the terminal areas of the lung, it fails in many cases to protect the body against the noxious effects of such extraneous material. This is particularly true of those substances which are not susceptible to the action of the digestive enzymes of the phagocytic cells.

In five internal bile-fistula dogs the daily total bilirubin output was significantly higher on high fat diets than on calorically equivalent low fat diets. This effect was also demonstrated in 2 external bile-fistula dogs. These findings indicate...
