Tree number(s): G09.188.100
G12.450.564.204
Scope note: The natural bactericidal property of BLOOD due to normally occurring antibacterial substances such as beta lysin, leukin, etc. This activity needs to be distinguished from the bactericidal activity contained in a patient's serum as a result of antimicrobial therapy, which is measured by a SERUM BACTERICIDAL TEST.
Annotation: restrict to bactericidal: fungicidal = probably fungus (IM) + BLOOD PHYSIOLOGICAL PHENOMENA (IM); do not confuse with SERUM BACTERICIDAL TEST (bactericidal activity in serum after antimicrobial therapy) or SERUM BACTERICIDAL ANTIBODY ASSAY (measurement of IMMUNOGLOBULINS in blood that initiate lysis of bacteria)
Allowable Qualifiers: DE drug effects
GE genetics
IM immunology
PH physiology
RE radiation effects
