Wow. Truly amazing. The one thing that is missing is some epic background music like Carl Orff - O fortuna (http://www.snotr.com/video/1955)

the white blood cell moves via chemotaxis, meaning it follows chemicals how ever it knows not to go two ways at once but can still phagocytose and endocytose as many bacteria or protozoans as it wants (or can fit on its cell membrane).

at 0:07 you can kinda see the pseudopodia trying to follow the other bacteria before it decided to go for the other guy

Nobody commented #15 and #16, therefore I reset the vote from minus to zero. I look forward to more medical stuff.

actually it's digesting the bacteria not only to kill it but also to have small pieces so antibodies can be created, thats why the macrophage only chases one...and by the swelling of the red cells you can tell it took quite sometime for this to happen.

Some of us have actually done courses on immunology and haematology along with bacteriology, parasitology, and mycology. But hey there is absolutely nothing wrong with wiki.

You seem like a good candidate for some radically liberal activist group if you think:

Some 'Benny Hill' music was playing in my head, wish the uploader had added that so I don't feel so mental.
