  • kinetics
  • 1. The intrasplenic kinetics of granulocytes, isolated in plasma and labelled in plasma with 111 In-tropolonate, have been studied in normal subjects, patients with negative studies for inflammatory disease and patients with positive studies, with the aim of identifying the nature of splenic activity seen after 111 In-labelled granulocyte administration. (clinsci.org)
  • bacterial
  • Granulocyte transfusions can be a supportive addition in selected severely neutropenic patients with marrow failure and bacterial sepsis when the usual therapy of antibiotics and drainage, etc. has failed. (fairview.org)
  • Most cases of bacterial sepsis in severely neutropenic patients respond to antibiotic therapy and granulocyte transfusions are rarely needed. (fairview.org)
  • blood
  • Granulocytes were isolated from whole blood using a commercial kit for positive selection (StemCell Technologies Inc. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • Granulocytes are counted as part of a white blood cell differential test . (medlineplus.gov)
  • 4. The application of deconvolution analysis to the blood and splenic time-activity curves generated a splenic retention (or washout) curve consistent with dynamic exchange of granulocytes between blood and spleen. (clinsci.org)
  • 5. Taking splenic activity to be reversible, comparison of the 111 In signal from the spleen 40 min after injection of 111 In-labelled granulocytes with that given from the spleen after the injection of 111 In-labelled erythrocytes (relative to their respective blood levels) indicated that intrasplenic granulocyte transit time was 14.4 (± se 1.1) times that of erythrocytes. (clinsci.org)
  • 7. Granulocyte donations have significantly more risks for the donor than other blood donations and these risks should be considered when weighing the risk and benefit prior to ordering the transfusion. (fairview.org)

  • immediately
  • The granulocytes reacted immediately to the physical stress of sleep loss and directly mirrored the body's stress response," said Katrin Ackermann, postdoctoral researcher at the Eramus MC University Medical Centre Rotterdam, the Netherlands. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • time
  • The slope of this curve indicated an intrasplenic granulocyte transit time of 9.3 (± se 0.6) min. (clinsci.org)
  • Based on actual erythrocyte time, this corresponds to a granulocyte transit time of 8.6-11.5 min, in close agreement with the estimate based on deconvolution analysis. (clinsci.org)
  • The mean transit time of granulocytes through the spleen, about 10 min, is remarkably similar to that of platelets. (clinsci.org)
  • activity
  • 6. The reversibility of splenic 111 In activity after labelled granulocyte injection was confirmed by observing falls in splenic activity between 40 min and 24 h and between 3 and 24 h, which were greater in patients with inflammatory disease than those without. (clinsci.org)
