In the isolation of polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMNs) the technique and other external factors can have great influence on the quality and quantity of isolated neutrophils. To elucidate the influence of the blood collection technique, anticoagulants and storing temperature on isolated PMNs healthy volunteers provided blood samples with different needles and collection techniques, anticoagulants (EDTA, heparin, citrate) and storing temperatures (4, 22, 37 °C). From each blood sample PMNs were isolated and compared regarding number of PMNs and oxidative burst. The blood collection technique, anticoagulants and storing temperature had minor impact on isolated PMNs. All three tested cannulas and anticoagulants can be used to obtain blood samples for PMN isolation. For storing temperatures 37 °C should be preferred. Regarding time between the PMN isolation and the actual experiments, a time span of maximum 1 h should be targeted.

Abstract Background and objectives Classical neutrophil-reactive antibody testing depends on the quick isolation of neutrophils from freshly taken whole blood. To allow a better logistic preparation before testing, the influence of time interval between venipuncture and cell isolation has been evaluated in this study. Materials and methods Neutrophils and whole leukocytes were isolated from EDTA whole blood immediately (T0) as well as 4, 8 and 24 h after blood donation (T4, T8 and T24). These ce...

Abstract Provision of blood from distant research partners to a central laboratory can result in delayed blood processing prior to assessment of immune parameters. It is important to evaluate the effect of such delays on immune parameters. This study investigated the effect of storage of blood at room temperature for up to 72 h prior to processing and analysis on a range of immune parameters. Blood was collected from 10 healthy participants and analysed immediately (day 0) or after storage at ro...

We report that human conventional CD15+ neutrophils can be isolated in the peripheral blood mononuclear cell (PBMC) layer during Ficoll gradient separation, and that they can impair T cell proliferation in vitro without concomitant neutrophil activation and killing. This effect was observed in a total of 92 patients with organ transplants, lung cancer or anxiety/depression, and in 18 healthy donors. Although such features are typically associated in the literature with the presence of certain my...

Neutrophils are the first cells arriving at sites of tissue injury or infection to combat invading pathogens. Successful neutrophil recruitment to sites of inflammation highly depends on specific molecular mechanisms, fine-tuning the received information into signaling pathways and converting them into well-described recruitment steps. This review highlights the impact of vascular flow conditions on neutrophil recruitment and the multitude of mechanisms developed to enable this sophisticated pro...

Healthy blood neutrophils are functionally quiescent in the bloodstream, have a short lifespan, and exit the circulation to carry out innate immune functions, or undergo rapid apoptosis and macrophage-mediated clearance to mitigate host tissue damage. Limitation of unnecessary intravascular neutrophil activation is also important to prevent serious inflammatory pathologies. Because neutrophils become easily activated after purification, we carried out ex vivo comparisons with neutrophils maintai...

Abstract Objective Sample manipulation to obtain isolated granulocytes represents a key, and often necessary, step in the in vitro studies. We investigated by the means of flow cytometry and microscopic techniques (both optical microscopy [OM] and scanning electron microscopy [SEM]), the granulocyte-endothelium adhesion and the role of sample manipulation. Methods By means of a co-culture method, we have analysed the adhesion of human leukocytes, originated from two different blood samples (fres...

Antioxidants are expected to improve cardiovascular disease (CVD) by eliminating oxidative stress, but clinical trials have not shown promising results in chronic CVD. Animal studies have revealed that reactive oxygen species (ROS) exacerbate acute CVDs in which high levels of ROS are observed. However, ROS are also necessary for angiogenesis after ischemia, because ROS not only damage cells but also stimulate the cell signaling required for angiogenesis. ROS affect signaling by protein modifica...

The C5a/C5a receptor (C5aR) pathway, a key component in the proinflammatory immune response, is an attractive therapeutic target since its dysregulation is implicated in a variety of autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. The objective of the present study was to validate a receptor occupancy (RO) assay for a human anti-C5aR monoclonal antibody drug candidate, NNC0215-0384 (NN0384). This flow cytometry-based assay measures the percentage (%), median fluorescence intensity (MFI), and molecules of...

Leukocyte exposure to hemodynamic shear forces is critical for physiological functions including initial adhesion to the endothelium, the formation of pseudopods, and migration into tissues. G-protein coupled receptors on neutrophils, which bind to chemoattractants and play a role in neutrophil chemotaxis, have been implicated as fluid shear stress sensors that control neutrophil activation. Recently, exposure to physiological fluid shear stresses observed in the microvasculature was shown to re...

Neutrophil activation and neutrophil extracellular traps (NETs) have been associated with the pathogenesis of venous thromboembolism (VTE). Considering VTE-associated chronic sequelae, which suggest that some pathological mechanisms remain after the acute episode, we investigated whether neutrophil activation is increased in patients with a prior VTE at least one year before this investigation. Thirty-seven patients with prior VTE and 37 individuals with no history of VTE were included. Neutroph...

Background and aim null Anticoagulants with different modes of action are used in the collection of camel blood samples. In the innate immune response, camel neutrophils and monocytes can play several roles during infection and inflammation. For anticoagulants ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) and heparin, research has described their effects on different parameters of the immune system. However, to date, no research has examined the effects of anticoagulants on the functional activity of c...
