Polymorphonuclear leukocyte chemotaxis was investigated in 35 patients with recurrent polyserositis during attacks and during spontaneous or colchicine-induced remissions. Chemotaxis was found to be unchanged in the attack-free period in untreated patients, increased by about 50% during attacks, and decreased by about 50% during colchicine treatment.
