  • antigens
  • HLA genes express their gene products on the surface of white blood cells (hence the name 'human leukocyte antigen,' although HLA class I genes (see 'Class I region' below) are also expressed on all nucleated cells) and were originally recognized to contain the genes encoding 'tissue antigens' or 'tissue types. (uptodate.com)
  • Leukocyte trafficking from bloodstream to tissue is important for the continuous surveillance for foreign antigens as well as for rapid leukocyte accumulation at sites of inflammatory response or tissue injury. (springer.com)
  • Human leukocyte antigens (HLAs) present protein fragments (peptides) to immune cells. (nih.gov)
  • tissue
  • Leukocyte extravasation , less commonly called diapedesis , is the movement of leukocytes out of the circulatory system and towards the site of tissue damage or infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • infection
  • Once in the interstitial fluid , leukocytes migrate along a chemotactic gradient towards the site of injury or infection. (wikipedia.org)
  • Leukocytes are white blood cells, the body's defence mechanism against invaders such as infection and disease. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Treatment for positive leukocytes includes treating the underlying infection with antibacterial medication such as Trimpex, Polycillin, Floxin, Noroxin, Cipro orTrovan. (ehow.co.uk)
  • blood
  • Leukocytes use the blood as a transport medium to reach the tissues of the body. (wikipedia.org)
  • This causes the immobilization of the leukocytes, which varies in vessels that contain different shear forces of the ongoing blood flow. (wikipedia.org)
  • Under the microscope, when in a fresh blood sample, granular leukocytes have a distinctive method of movement which the agranular leukocytes lack. (ehow.co.uk)
  • Furthermore, the cellular expression of CD9, CD63, and CD81 varied between leukocytes present in whole blood and cultured leukocytes. (hindawi.com)
  • female, suprapubic catheter, no stones, no bateria (C&S), recent scan of kidneys all clear BUT persistent leukocytes (sometimes with blood and protein, sometimes without). (rutgers.edu)
  • Protein
  • According to Medline Plus, an excess of both protein or vitamin C can lead to a negative test, even when there are leukocytes present. (livestrong.com)
