One of the important functions of the macrophage system appears to be the detection and phagocytosis of foreign material. In vivo, the phagocytic reaction to foreign material is modified by the presence of chemotactic and opsonic materials contained in the body fluids. Studies of phagocytosis in vitro, in the presence of serum, are likely also to reflect merely the activity of the opsonic substances contained within the environment, and not the intrinsic capacity of the macrophage to react with foreign material.
