Phagocytic Cells: Phagocytic cells are white blood cells and other types of cells that are a part of the immune system. Phagocytic cells have the ability to surround and destroy foreign substances in the body. This action, called phagocytosis, plays an important role in defending the body against harmful substances, such as bacteria, viruses, foreign bodies, and other micro-organisms that can cause diseases and abnormal conditions. Phagocytic cells also help the body to rid itself of old or abnormal cells, such as old red blood cells, and play a role in creating new red blood cells. Phagocytic cells are produced by the bone marrow and are found throughout the body in the bloodstream and in tissues. The types of phagocytic cells include nonprofessional phagocytic cells, monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, dendritic cells and mast cells.
Conditions that can be related to phagocytic cells include anemia, liver dysfunction, kidney damage, septic shock, and reticulum cell sarcoma.
