multicellular organisms from pathogens. It defends the body against foreign bodies, and generates a vast variety of cells and molecules capable of specifically recognizing and eliminating foreign bodies, all which act together in a dynamic network. Neutrophils have been referred to as a first line of defence; they are first defensive cells at a site of inflammation; however the resident leukocytes are cells which normally are present at the sites of inflammation. Neutrophils express their antibacterial action with the help of granules to reduce dioxygen to hydrogen peroxide. The primary function of neutrophils is to find bacteria and neutralize them by phagocytosis.
