An ex vivo infection model based on human fixed polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) gives an autofluorescence signal that differs significantly between stimulated and unstimulated cells. We took advantage of this property for use in an in vivo pneumonia mouse model and in patients hospitalized with bacterial pneumonia. https://www.leica-microsystems.com//science-lab/analysis-of-autofluorescence-in-polymorphonuclear-neutrophils-a-new-tool-for-early-infection-diagnosis/ Wed, 29 Oct 2014 12:21:00 +0000
