Eosinophil purification from human bone marrow.

Abstract

Eosinophils are innate immune cells that are best known for their involvement in host defense against parasitic infections and in asthma and allergic diseases. In vitro characterization of the function of human eosinophils has traditionally relied on the purification of these cells from the peripheral blood as reviewed in Chapter 2. Here, we describe a newly developed protocol for the purification of eosinophils from human bone marrow.
