To determine the mechanism of easy infectability of uremic patients, we studied the effect of sera from uremic patients who were undergoing chronic hemodialysis on the chemiluminescence (CL) response of polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN). The luminol-dependent CL response was examined following stimulation with phorbol myristate acetate (PMA) and N-formyl-methionyl-leucyl-phenylalanine (FMLP). The patient's sera suppressed the CL response following stimulation by PMA, but not by FMLP. These findings suggest that sera from uremic patients undergoing hemodialysis contain a suppressive substance that suppresses the activation of PMNs by PMA.
