Abstract:

The studies carried out during the first year of this contract were concerned principally with determining the optimal dosage of plasma from rats which had undergone filtration leukopheresis PPP to stimulate a granulocytosis in other rats to be used as granulocyte donors 1,2. The objective of using PPP in granulocyte donors is to increase the harvest of granulocytes from these donors. Ultimately, it is the intention to determine whether stimulation of granulocytosis by this means will be useful in a clinical setting.
