Indirect Antibiotic Effects on Granulocyte Migration and Phagocytosis
It is well known that patients with low numbers of neutrophil granulocytes or with different mal-functions of neutrophil granulocytes  do become infected more easily and that infections tend to be more serious in these patients than in individuals with normal granulocytes .
