Oxygen uptake increases markedly, frequently more than 50-fold- the phagocytes begin to produce large quantities of superoxide and hydrogen peroxide- and they immediately begin to metabolize large amounts of glucose by way of the hexose monophosphate shunt.

This series of changes has become known as the respiratory burst. It was first believed that the major function of this respiratory burst was to generate powerful antibacterial agents by the partial reduction of oxygen. It is becoming apparent that the respiratory burst has much wider application, and its physiological function in many different biolog­ ical areas is clear. In this volume, we have attempted to bring together the work of experts who have published extensively on the involvement of the respiratory burst in different physiological functions.
