The effects of ascorbic acid and calcium and sodium ascorbate at a concentration range of 10-6M - 10-1M on polymorphonuclear leucocyte (PMN) phagocytosis of Candida albicans and post-phagocytic nitroblue tetrazolium (NSD reduction, hexose monophosphate shunt (HMS) activity and myeloperoxidase-mediated iodination of ingested protein were investigated.
