Reduced neutrophil apoptosis in diabetic mice during Staphylococcus aureus infection leads to prolonged TNFalpha production and reduced neutrophil clearance

F. Hanses & J. C. Lee
Objectives: Diabetic patients frequently suffer from chronic infections and inflammation. At the same time, diabetes mellitus is a common comorbidity in Staphylococcus aureus infections associated with a poorer outcome. Our goal was to study the role of neutrophils in S. aureus infections complicated[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
