et-tu-bromocriptine  To add on: If neutrophils don't have access to NADPH oxidase, they can still use the bacteria's own hydrogen peroxidase to create ROS and kill the bacteria; however, catalase + organisms will not have this hydrogen peroxidase available (because catalase converts hydrogen peroxidase to O2 and water). So then the neutrophils are screwed and have no way of creating ROS. +6
