Phagocytosis in experimental burns

Journal of Surgical Research 21(6): 437-448

Phagocytosis in experimental burns

The variations of phagocytic activity [in rats for Salmonella typhimurium] were measured during a 9-day period following experimental burns. The burns are of an intermediate type; necrosis develops within 2-4 days after thermal trauma and covers up to 10% of total body surface. Phagocytic activity was measured in peripheral blood, spleen and liver by measuring both clearance of bacteria and the bactericidal index of the macrophages. Shortly after burn trauma, a considerable inactivation of the bactericidal index was noticed. The decrease of the phagocytic activity of macrophages in the liver and peripheral blood is important but transient; the decrease of the phagocytic activity of splenic macrophages is drastic and persists unimproved for at least 9 days following burn injury.
