The granules of neutrophils (approx. 70% of the white blood cells) contain a large number of different enzymes. Myeloperoxidase (MPO) catalyzes the oxidation of substances through H2O2. The MPO H2O2 system has a toxic effect on many microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, viruses and mycoplasma. The efficiency of the bacteria-destructive Myeloperoxidase H2O2 system is increased by PMN-Elastase. MPO determination in the stool reflects the inflammatory activity of Crohn´s disease or ulcerative colitis.
