Key Points

  • Neutrophils
    • Innate immune cell
      • Typically arrive right after macrophages at the site of infection because there are so many of them in circulation
    • Phagocyte
      • Neutrophils are one of the major phagocytic killers of the innate immune system
    • Granulocyte
      • Neutrophils contain and release granules with molecules toxic to foreign pathogens
