    Very interesting about neutrophils. And also very enlightening about how they go about trying to help
    fight cancer.

    Eric Skaar, Ph.D., assistant professor of Microbiology and Immunology and senior author of the study said in the above article:

    "If we can figure out how to make a molecule that transiently binds metals, and that can be targeted to abscesses, I think that would be a great drug," Skaar said.

    It's obvious they figure that would make more money than trying to support the immune system to increase the amount of neutrophils that fight the bacteria and also cancer, BTW. Vitamin D can increase production of neutrophils, which is why people tend to have more in the summer than in winter. So sun exposure is increasing neutrophils.

    There has been neutrophil treatment for cancer in the past:
