Abstract

We previously reported that adherence, orientation and directed movement of human milk leukocytes (HMLs) were less than peripheral blood leukocytes (PBLs). Since the diminished motility may have been due to a decrease in adherence, a type 1 collagen gel system where leukocyte movement is less dependent on adherence was used to explore these questions.
