Professional Phagocytic Cells: Professional phagocytic cells are white blood cells and other types of cells that are a part of the immune system. The types of professional phagocytic cells include monocytes, macrophages, neutrophils, dendritic cells and mast cells. Professional 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. Professional 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. Professional phagocytic cells are produced by the bone marrow and are found throughout the body in the bloodstream and in tissues.
Conditions that can be related to professional phagocytic cells include anemia, liver dysfunction, kidney damage, septic shock, and reticulum cell sarcoma.
