    It has previously/ been shown that secretary immunoglobulin A (S-IgA) influences the sorption of oral streptococci to hydroxyapatite as well as to cell surfaces. The present experiments demonstrate that bacterial IgA protease, which cleave S-IgA in the hinge region, are capable of interfering...

    Monophosphoryl lipid A (MPLA) is a lipopolysaccharides (LPS) derivative associated with neutrophil-dependent anti-inflammatory outcomes in animal models of sepsis. Little is known about the effect of MPLA on neutrophil function. This study sought to test the hypothesis that MPLA would reduce...
