Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The DNA anti DNA hetero-immunocomplex phagocytosing capacity of polymorphonuclear leukocytes of patients with discoid and systematic lupus erythematodes in 22 different periods is studied by the authors. The phagocyte capacity of normal control group performed by a cytomorphologic system has been 24 ± 2.4%, with the DLE/S group 13.2 ± 1.6%, with the SLE-group 11 ± 1.77%. The decreased phagocyte function has been significantly evaluable in the SLE and DLE/S groups; at the same time however in the DLE-cases demonstrating only skin symptoms no difference of evaluable degree has been found in comparison to the normal control group.
