Medical Definition of Nadi reaction

1. Formation of indophenol blue by the action of an oxidizing enzyme present in certain cells and tissues when they are treated with a solution of alpha-naphthol and dimethylparaphenylenediamine; by this method, cells of the myelocyte series, which give a positive reaction, may be distinguished from those of the lymphocyte series, which give a negative reaction; endothelial leukocytes give a variable reaction, probably positive when they have phagocytised the debris of myeloid cells. Synonym: Nadi reaction. (05 Mar 2000)
