Monocyte-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity: a clinical test of monocyte function. (1/7223)

The lack of a simple, rapid, and quantitative test of the functional activity of the monocyte has hampered studies of the contribution of this cell type to host defense and human disease. This report describes an assay of antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity, which depends exclusively upon the monocyte as the effector cell and therefore provides a convenient test of monocyte function. In this system, mononuclear leukocytes (MNL) obtained by Ficoll-Hypaque separation of whole blood are cytotoxic for 51Cr-labeled human erythrocyte targets coated with anti-blood group antibody. Removal of phagocytic monocytes from the MNL by iron ingestion, followed by exposure to a magnetic field, completely abolishes all cytotoxic activity from the remaining MNL population. Similarly, in severely mono-cytopenic patients with aplastic anemia, cytotoxic effector activity is absent. In normals and less severely monocytopenic aplastic anemia patients, cytotoxicity correlates significantly (p less than 0.001) with monocyte number. Application of this monocyte-mediated antibody-dependent cellular cytotoxicity assay to the study of patients with the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome has revealed defective monocyte cytotoxic activity in spite of normal monocyte numbers, suggesting that this test may be useful for the assessment of monocyte function in a variety of clinical situations.  (+info)

Antitumor agents. I. Effect of 5-fluorouracil and cyclophosphamide on liver microsomes and thymus of rat. (2/7223)

Effects of antitumor agents on rat liver microsomal drug-metabolizing enzyme activities and thymus lymphocytes were studied in male Wistar rats. High doses of 5-fluorouracil (5-FU) and cyclophosphamide (CP) given parenterally for 6 days caused a partial decrease in whole body weight and the microsomal enzyme content such as cytochrome P-450 and cytochrome b5. Aniline p-hydroxylase and aminopyrine N-demethylase activities also decreased in rats dosed for 5 days decreased compared with the control. Both compounds in the high concentrations produced spectral change of "modified type II". However, the magnitude of the spectral changes observed was independent of the the concentration of substrate added. The addition of NADPH to the microsomes-substrate mixture modified the spectral change. Both drugs caused a considerable decrease in thymus weight and the number of thymus lymphocytes, while the alkaline phosphatase activity was enhanced in 5-FU groups, indicating that the agents cause a significant involution of the thymus. Decrease in the total number of the lymphocytes was greater than that in the blood leucocytes.  (+info)

Optimizing aminoglycoside therapy for nosocomial pneumonia caused by gram-negative bacteria. (3/7223)

Nosocomial pneumonia is a notable cause of morbidity and mortality and leads to increases in lengths of hospital stays and institutional expenditures. Aminoglycosides are used to treat patients with these infections, but few data on the doses and schedules required to achieve optimal therapeutic outcomes exist. We analyzed aminoglycoside treatment data for 78 patients with nosocomial pneumonia to determine if optimization of aminoglycoside pharmacodynamic parameters results in a more rapid therapeutic response (defined by outcome and days to leukocyte count resolution and temperature resolution). Cox proportional hazards, Classification and Regression Tree (CART), and logistic regression analyses were applied to the data. By all analyses, the first measured maximum concentration of drug in serum (Cmax)/MIC predicted days to temperature resolution and the second measured Cmax/MIC predicted days to leukocyte count resolution. For days to temperature resolution and leukocyte count resolution, CART analyses produced breakpoints, with an 89% success rate at 7 days of therapy for a Cmax/MIC of > 4.7 and an 86% success rate at 7 days of therapy for a Cmax/MIC of > 4.5, respectively. Logistic regression analyses predicted a 90% probability of temperature resolution and leukocyte count resolution by day 7 if a Cmax/MIC of > or = 10 is achieved within the first 48 h of aminoglycoside therapy. Aggressive aminoglycoside dosing immediately followed by individualized pharmacokinetic monitoring would ensure that Cmax/MIC targets are achieved early in therapy. This would increase the probability of a rapid therapeutic response for pneumonia caused by gram-negative bacteria and potentially decreasing durations of parenteral antibiotic therapy, lengths of hospitalization, and institutional expenditures, a situation in which both the patient and the institution benefit.  (+info)

Increase of hematopoietic responses by triple or single helical conformer of an antitumor (1-->3)-beta-D-glucan preparation, Sonifilan, in cyclophosphamide-induced leukopenic mice. (4/7223)

It has been suggested that the immunopharmacological activity of soluble (1-->3)-beta-D-glucan depends on its conformation in mice. In this study, we examined the relationship between the conformation of Sonifilan (SPG) and hematopietic responses in cyclophosphamide (Cy)-induced leukopenic mice. SPG, a high molecular weight (1-->3)-beta-D-glucan, has a triple helical conformation in water, and it was changed by treatment with aqueous sodium hydroxide to the single helical conformer (SPG-OH). The effects of SPG or SPG-OH on hematopoietic responses in cyclophosphamide induced leukopenic mice were investigated by monitoring i) gene expression of cytokines by RT-PCR, ii) protein synthesis of interleukin 6 (IL-6) by ELISA and iii) colony formation of bone marrow cells (BMC). The mice administered Cy and SPG or SPG-OH expressed and produced higher levels of IL-6 mRNA and protein than the mice administered only Cy. Gene expression of NK1.1 was also induced by Cy/SPG (or SPG-OH) treatment. Induced gene expression of stem cell factor (SCF) and macrophage-colony stimulating factor (M-CSF) by SPG/SPG-OH were also found in in vitro culture of BMC from Cy treated mice. These results strongly suggested that conformation of the glucans, single and triple helix, are independent of the hematopietic response.  (+info)

An epidemiological study on the association between the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts, and risk factors of ischemic heart disease by smoking status in Japanese factory workers. (5/7223)

Several epidemiologic studies have shown the association between total leukocyte count and the risk of developing myocardial infarction. The purpose of this study was to assess the association between the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts and risk factors of ischemic heart disease in 1,384 Japanese factory workers. Total leukocyte and neutrophil counts were significantly higher in current smokers than in non-smokers. Among current smokers, the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts were positively associated with the number of cigarettes smoked daily and the duration of cigarette smoking and alcohol consumption. Being independent of smoking habit, the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts were also related to several characteristics recorded at the physical examinations. The total leukocyte and neutrophil counts were positively associated with serum total cholesterol, serum triglyceride and hematocrit levels, and inversely associated with the serum HDL-cholesterol level. No significant associations of the total leukocyte or neutrophil counts were found with the red blood cell count and hemoglobin level. These results suggest that the total leukocyte and neutrophil counts may represent the metabolic condition with a high coronary risk among apparently healthy people.  (+info)

The effect of age and teat order on alpha1-acid glycoprotein, neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio, cortisol, and average daily gain in commercial growing pigs. (6/7223)

The objectives of the study were to evaluate age and teat order on a performance trait, average daily gain, and on physiological stress indicators, alpha1-acid glycoprotein (AGP), neutrophil-to-lymphocyte ratio (N:L), and cortisol in commercial growing pigs from weaning to market age. Pigs (n = 129) from five commercial California farms were weighed and blood-sampled at 28-d intervals from 28 to 168 d of age. Laboratory assays were performed from blood samples to quantify cortisol, AGP, and N:L. Age and facility effects (P<.001), but not teat order effects (P>.05), were found for all three physiological traits and ADG. Pigs that routinely suckled from teats 1, 4, or 6 (numbered from anterior to posterior on the upper teat bank) had similar (P>.05) ADG and BW throughout the production cycle. No correlation (P> .05) was found between cortisol, AGP, and N:L. The use of these physiological and production traits as stress and health indices of growing pigs in commercial facilities has limitations in comparing data between facilities or different ages of pigs.  (+info)

Early infection in bone marrow transplantation: quantitative study of clinical factors that affect risk. (7/7223)

Infections remain common life-threatening complications of bone marrow transplantation. To examine clinical factors that affect infection risk, we retrospectively studied patients who received bone marrow transplants (53 autologous and 51 allogeneic). Over a median of 27 hospital days, 44 patients developed documented infections. Both autologous transplantation and hematopoietic growth factor use were associated with less prolonged neutropenia and decreased occurrence of infection (P < or = .05). In a survival regression model, variables independently associated with infection risk were the log10 of the neutrophil count (hazard ratio [HR], 0.49; 95% confidence interval [CI], 0.32-0.75), ciprofloxacin prophylaxis (HR, 0.42; 95% CI, 0.19-0.95), empirical intravenous antibiotic use (HR, 0.09; 95% CI, 0.03-0.32), and an interaction between neutrophil count and intravenous antibiotic use (HR, 1.86; 95% CI, 1.06-3.29). In this model, infection risk increases steeply at low neutrophil counts for patients receiving no antibiotic therapy. Ciprofloxacin prophylaxis and particularly intravenous antibiotic therapy provide substantial protection at low neutrophil counts. These results can be used to model management strategies for transplant recipients.  (+info)

Airway inflammatory response to ozone in subjects with different asthma severity. (8/7223)

The aim of this study was to evaluate whether ozone exposure induces a similar airway inflammatory response in subjects with different degrees of asthma severity. Two groups of asthmatic subjects were studied: seven with intermittent mild asthma not requiring regular treatment (group A); and seven with persistent mild asthma requiring regular treatment with inhaled corticosteroids and long-acting beta2-agonists (group B). All subjects were exposed, in a randomized cross-over design, to air or O3 (0.26 parts per million (ppm) for 2 h with intermittent exercise); subjects in group B withdrew from regular treatment 72 h before each exposure. Before the exposure, and 1 and 2 h after the beginning of the exposure they performed a pulmonary function test, and a questionnaire was completed to obtain a total symptom score (TSS). Six hours after the end of the exposure, hypertonic saline (HS) sputum induction was conducted. Sputum cell percentages, eosinophil cationic protein (ECP) and interleukin (IL)-8 concentrations in the sputum supernatant were measured. TSS significantly increased and forced vital capacity (FVC) and forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) significantly decreased after O3 exposure in comparison with air exposure in group A, whereas no changes were observed in group B except for a significant decrement of FEV1 2 h after the beginning of O3 exposure. Sputum neutrophil percentage was significantly higher after O3 exposure than after air exposure in both groups (Group A: 70.2% (28-87) versus 26.6% (8.6-73.2); Group B: 62.1% (25-82.4) versus 27.9% (14.4-54)). IL-8 was higher in sputum supernatant collected 6 h after O3 exposure than after air, only in group A. No change due to O3 has been found in sputum eosinophil percentage and ECP concentration in both groups. In conclusion, the degree of airway response to a short-term exposure to ozone is different in subjects with asthma of different severity. The available data do not allow elucidation of whether this difference depends on the severity of the disease or on the regular anti-inflammatory treatment.  (+info)

Question - Can costochrondritis cause elevated white blood cell count?. Ask a Doctor about when and why Complete blood count is advised, Ask a General & Family Physician
There are several possible causes for a high white blood cell count. This count is high when there are more disease-fighting cells in your body. The technical term for this condition is leukocytosis.. Different medical practices may have different limits by which they define high white blood cell count. A count of 10,500 leukocytes in one microliter of blood is widely accepted as a high count. The threshold may vary between sex and age.. White blood cells are categorized by five subtypes, and each type has a different activity in fighting disease. When you get the results of your white blood cell count, they will usually specify what the levels are of all the different types. Usually, a high count is only caused by an increase in one type of white blood cells.. A high white blood cell count is indicative of an immune system problem that increases their production; a disease in your bone marrow that causes high blood cell production; a reaction to some drug that is used to enhance cell ...

Abstract. Objective: To determine the correlation between differential leukocyte counts and hyperglycemic emergencies.. Methods: Fifty patients with diabetic ketoacidosis (DKA), 50 patients with diabetic ketosis (DK), 50 non-DK diabetic patients with stable glycemic control, and 50 normal controls were enrolled. Their total and differential leukocyte counts were measured and evaluated at admission and after treatment.. Results: The patients with DKA and DK had higher plasma glucose levels (20.84±6.73 mmol/L, 15.55±2.6 mmol/L, respectively) and more median leukocytes (13325/mm3 and 6595/mm3, respectively) and median neutrophils (11124 /mm3 and 4125/mm3, respectively) but fewer median eosinophils (28/mm3 and 72/mm3, respectively) compared to non-DK and control groups (all p , 0.05). Acute infection increased the elevating extent. The median leukocyte counts in DK and non-DK patients (6595/mm3 and 6008/mm3, respectively) were within the normal range. The counts of total leukocytes and neutrophils ...
Inflammation is increasingly recognized as having an important role in patients with acute coronary syndromes. We sought to determine whether an elevated white blood cell (WBC) count would predict subsequent mortality and whether revascularization would have a protective effect. We analyzed data from 10,480 patients with acute coronary syndromes enrolled in the PURSUIT trial who had a WBC count measured on admission. WBC count values were stratified by quartiles, and death rates at 6 months were examined in univariate and multivariate analyses. Propensity analysis was performed to assess the effect of revascularization on the relation between WBC count and mortality. In the lowest quartile of WBC count, mortality was 4.0%; it was 5.8% in the second quartile, 6.7% in the third quartile, and 8.0% in the fourth quartile (p ...
Comparison of the Predictive Strength of Total White Blood Cell Count Within 24 Hours on Outcome of Traumatic Brain Injury with Glasgow Coma Score and Pupillary Reactivity
This study examined the effects of palm carotene feeding on DNA damage of bone marrow, recovery of peripheral leukocyte counts, and the survival of mice that received whole-body X-ray irradiation. The palm carotene was composed of alpha- and beta-carotene in a ratio of 1:3. Mice were fed either a basal diet or a carotene diet (50 mg carotene/100 g diet) for 2 weeks, then irradiated. The carotene diet was prepared by the dietary protocol that markedly enhanced the accumulation of carotene in tissues (J. Nutr. 125, 3081, 1995). DNA damage in bone marrow was evaluated by micronucleus assay using peripheral blood. When mice received X-ray (1.5 Gy), marked DNA damage in bone marrow and reduction of peripheral leukocyte count were observed. These changes were significantly attenuated in mice fed the carotene diet. In addition, X-ray (6.5 Gy)-induced survival of mice fed the carotene diet was higher than those fed the basal diet. In mice fed the carotene diet, alpha- and beta-carotene were detected in ...
ABSTRACT Aims: The aim of the present study is to investigate systemic levels of inflammatory markers of cardiovascular diseases like C-reactive protein (CRP), interleukin-6 (IL-6), total leukocyte count and differential count in patients with chronic periodontitis, in comparison to healthy individuals without periodontal disease.
Low Monocyte count is also known as Monocytopenia and it refers to the abnormal decrease of Monocytes in the circulating blood.. The normal white blood cell count of Monocytes ranges between 1100 cells/µL (5.8% of differential white blood cells count) in infants to300 cells/µL (4% of differential white blood cells count) in adults.. In addition to the main causes of Leukopenia, low Monocytes count can be a result of acute stress or glucocorticoid administration.. Immunosuppressive agents (drugs that reduce the production of white cells) and overwhelming infections will decrease the count of Monocytes in the blood.. ...

Background and Objectives: Acute appendicitis is most common surgical emergency and Appendicectomy for same is a common procedure. The rate of negative appendicectomies remains high despite several technical advancements. The study aims to compare few investigations like Total leucocyte count (TLC), C-reactive protien (CRP), Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and Ultrasonographic (USG) with per-op findings. Histopathologic examination (HPE) report will be taken as confirmatory test. The need to study is to find out which is the most sensitive and specific investigation that can help us improve our diagnosis of acute appendicitis. Methods: The study was conducted in 100 consecutive patients of Acute Appendicitis at an Armed Forces Tertiary Care Hospital. Total leucocyte count (TLC), C-reactive protien (CRP), Lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) and Ultrasonographic (USG) findings were noted preoperatively. Per-operative findings were noted in all the patients. Histopathologic examination (HPE) of appendicectomy ...
Objective: We hypothesized that a single value of leukocyte count, on admission might be a helpful predictor to prognosticate the clinical outcome and plan the management (early delivery versus conservative management) in patients presenting with pre term pre-labour rupture of membranes (PPROM).. Design: Observational study.. Setting: This study was conducted in a tertiary care centre.. Population or sample: 127 pregnancies complicated with PPROM.. Method: A novel scoring system was devised depending upon the final clinical performance. Main outcome measure: Adverse fetal, neonatal and maternal outcome.. Result: Based on the score cut off for the total leukocyte count was calculated to prognosticate the outcome. Leukocyte count of 15,850/mm3, at the time of admission was found to be able to predict the clinical outcome with a sensitivity of 85.7% and specificity of 87.6%, in a case of PPROM. Whereas the individual components of differential leukocyte counts were found to be not of much help in ...
White blood cell (WBC) count has been associated with diabetic risk, but whether the correlation is independent of other risk factors has hardly been studied. Moreover, very few such studies with large sample sizes have been conducted in Chinese. Therefore, we investigated the relationship between WBC count and glucose metabolism in china. We also examined the relevant variables of WBC count. A total of 9,697 subjects (mean age, 58.0 ± 9.1 years) were recruited. The subjects were classified into four groups, including subjects with normal glucose tolerance, isolated impaired fasting glucose, impaired glucose tolerance and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). We found that WBC count increased as glucose metabolism disorders exacerbated. WBC count was also positively correlated with waist hip ratio, body mass index, smoking, triglycerides, glycosylated haemoglobin A1c (HbA1c) and 2-h postprandial glucose. In addition, high density lipoprotein and the female gender were inversely correlated with WBC count. In

The most dangerous thing that is associated with this disease is that it affects the bodys ability to fight infections. A person effected with a leucopenia have a tremendous decrease in the number of total white blood cells (leukocytes) found in blood. It is also known as leukocytopenia. The normal total white cell count is 5000-10000 per cubic millimeter. If the total white cell count drops below 3,500 per cubic millimeter in the blood, the person is said to be suffering from leucopenia. ...
Low white blood cell count colon cancer - My husband has colon cancer, his tumor and section of colon were removed yesterday. He has an elevated white blood cell count but no fever. Problem? See below. All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, the elevated white cell count is likely a normal reaction to the trauma of surgery. If he has fever, discharge from the surgical site, pain at the surgical site, then you should consult your doctor promptly.
The purpose of the present study was twofold: (1) to determine if X-irradiation can be considered a direct stress agent, and if so, to what extent it differs from other stressors; and (2) to further elucidate the role of the adrenal cortex in the radiation syndrome by determining the more immediate responses of this system to X-irradiation.
CONTEXT: Impaired fetal growth is associated with increased risk for coronary heart disease and diabetes in adulthood, but the underlying mechanism is unclear. OBJECTIVE: The objective of the study was to examine the relation between early growth (weight at birth and first year) and adult total leukocyte count, the primary cell effectors of inflammation. DESIGN: This was a birth cohort study (Northern Finland Birth Cohort 1966) with participants prospectively and longitudinally followed up from birth to age 31 yr. SETTING: This was a general population-based cohort in Finland. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 5619 offspring of expectant mothers who attended a clinical examination and blood draw at 31-yr follow-up (4486 with complete data on weight at 1 yr) participated in the study. MAIN EXPOSURE VARIABLES: Weight at birth and at 1 year. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE: Absolute leukocyte count was measured. RESULTS: Total leukocyte count was lower at higher birth weight categories with or without adjustments for adult

Virchow spoke of a physiologic leukocytosis of pregnancy, and by the weight of his authority the assumption was given validity, repeated in textbooks, but as far as can be found out, never very seriously investigated. De Lee1 elaborates the idea by stating that during pregnancy, from the first few months, there is a decrease of the red blood cells and an increase of the white blood cells, the latter out of proportion to the former yet seldom exceeding 15,000; that the younger forms increase so that the blood of pregnancy resembles that in an acute infectious disease, and further that ...
Dairy cows are highly susceptible to infectious diseases, like mastitis, during the period around calving. Although factors contributing to increased susceptibility to infection have not been fully elucidated, impaired neutrophil recruitment to the site of infection and changes in the concentrations of some micronutrients related with the function of the immune defence has been implicated. Most of the current information is based on studies outside the Nordic countries where the conditions for dairy cows are different. Therefore, the aim of the study was to evaluate changes in blood concentrations of the vitamins A and E, the minerals calcium (Ca), phosphorous (P), and magnesium (Mg), the electrolytes potassium (K) and sodium (Na) and the trace elements selenium (Se), copper (Cu) and zinc (Zn), as well as changes in total and differential white blood cell counts (WBC) and expression of the adhesion molecules CD62L and CD18 on blood neutrophils in Swedish dairy cows during the period around calving.

The blood delivers leukocytes to the various tissues from the bone marrow, where they are produced. Normal blood leukocyte counts are 4.3-10.8 × 109/L, with neutrophils representing 45-74% of the cells, bands 0-4%, lymphocytes 16-45%, monocytes 4-10%, eosinophils 0-7%, and basophils 0-2%. Variation among individuals and among different ethnic groups can be substantial, with lower leukocyte numbers for certain African-American ethnic groups. The various leukocytes are derived from a common stem cell in the bone marrow. Three-fourths of the nucleated cells of bone marrow are committed to the production of leukocytes. Leukocyte maturation in the marrow is under the regulatory control of a number of different factors, known as colony-stimulating factors (CSFs) and interleukins (ILs). Because an alteration in the number and type of leukocytes is often associated with disease processes, total white blood cell (WBC) count (cells per μL) and differential counts are informative. This chapter focuses on ...
A lytic agent is described which when mixed with whole blood, lyses the red cells instantly, but does not affect the optical, light scattering properties of the white blood cells for at least 30 seconds. This lytic agent enables the performance of a five part leukocyte differential by flow cytometry and light scattering. In its preferred embodiment, the lytic agent incorporates 2-phenoxyethanol which combines the functions of leukoprotective and antimicrobial, TRITON X-100 (octylphenoxypolyethoxyethanol) a lytic and wetting agent and TRIS/HCl to provide pH buffering and to increase the solutions conductivity.
Result column: The result column shows counts that fall within the normal range.. Flag column: The flag column shows counts that are lower (L) or higher (H) than the normal range.. Reference Interval (or Reference Range) column: The reference interval shows the normal range for each measurement for the lab performing the test. Different labs may use different reference intervals.. White blood cells: White blood cells help protect individuals from infections. The above CBC report shows that the patients total white cell count is 1.5, which is lower than the normal range of 4.0-10.5. The low white cell count increases the risk of infection.. Differential: This portion of the CBC shows the counts for the 5 main kinds of white cells, either as percentages (the first 5 counts), or as the absolute number of cells (the second 5 counts).. Absolute neutrophil count: Neutrophils are the main white blood cell for fighting or preventing bacterial or fungal infections. In the CBC report, neutrophils may ...
White blood cell (WBC) count is a common clinical measure from complete blood count assays, and it varies widely among healthy individuals. Total WBC count and its constituent subtypes have been shown to be moderately heritable, with the heritability estimates varying across cell types. We studied 19,509 subjects from seven cohorts in a discovery analysis, and 11,823 subjects from ten cohorts for replication analyses, to determine genetic factors influencing variability within the normal hematological range for total WBC count and five WBC subtype measures. Cohort specific data was supplied by the CHARGE, HeamGen, and INGI consortia, as well as independent collaborative studies. We identified and replicated ten associations with total WBC count and five WBC subtypes at seven different genomic loci (total WBC count-6p21 in the HLA region, 17q21 near ORMDL3, and CSF3; neutrophil count-17q21; basophil count- 3p21 near RPN1 and C3orf27; lymphocyte count-6p21, 19p13 at EPS15L1; monocyte count-2q31 at ITGA4,
White blood cell count (leukocyte count): The number of white blood cells (WBCs) in the blood. The WBC is usually measured as part of the CBC (complete blood count). White blood cells are the infection-fighting cells in the blood and are distinct from the red (oxygen-carrying) blood cells known as erythrocytes. There are different types of white blood cells, including neutrophils (polymorphonuclear leukocytes; PMNs), band cells (slightly immature neutrophils), T-type lymphocytes (T cells), B-type lymphocytes (B cells), monocytes, eosinophils, and basophils. All the types of white blood cells are reflected in the white blood cell count. The normal range for the white blood cell count varies between laboratories but is usually between 4,300 and 10,800 cells per cubic millimeter of blood. This can also be referred to as the leukocyte count and can be expressed in international units as 4.3 - 10.8 x 109 cells per liter. ...

In my thesis I focused on comparing a differential leukocyte count (DIF) determined by the analyzer and by microscope in the group of pediatric oncological and hemato-oncological patients. Thesis is divided into theoretical and practical parts. The theoretical part includes an explanation of the process of hematopoiesis, the development of blood cells and the characteristic of time series, a decription of hemato-oncological and oncological diseases which occur most frequently in the monitored group of pediatric patients, and their treatment. In a practical part is described a determination of the DIF by the analyzer Beckman Coulter LH 750 and by microscope Meopta. I measured a blood count with the differencial leukocyte count, I made a blood smear and I evaluated microscopically it, in the selected group of pediatric patients. The results were reported in the tables and statistically processed using paired t-test in GraphPad Prism and were created graphs. An aim of this thesis was to explore and ...
I took care of a trauma patient a few months ago who was in a motor vehicle crash on her prom night. Initial imaging showed some left sided rib fractures and a broken leg. She was admitted to the regular nursing floor for further observation. When I saw her in the morning (4 hours after arrival) I found that she had one of those classic seat belt signs. She was also was quite tender on abdominal exam. Her labs revealed an elevated white blood cell count, in itself not necessarily a concerning thing as young trauma patients with broken limbs will often mount a reactive leukocytosis. But her abdominal exam bothered me. I reviewed the CT with the radiologist. She didnt see anything unusual. So I repeated the CT and the blood work 2 hours later. Her WBC count was now over 20. The CT scan, however, was again read as normal. When I examined her, she had frank peritonitis ...
PRIMARY OBJECTIVES:. I. To determine the maximum tolerated dose (MTD) of recombinant human IL15 (rhIL15) administered subcutaneously.. SECONDARY OBJECTIVES:. I. To determine the effect of the dose schedules of rhIL15 on the number and phenotype of peripheral blood mononuclear cells including: total white blood cell count; absolute lymphocyte count (ALC); and total number of T cells and natural killer (NK) cells, as well as activated T cells, T cell subsets and NK cell subsets..

This study aimed to evaluate the effect of heat stress on quail hematological parameters. A total number of 300 Japanese quail chicks (Coturnix Coturnix japonica) of 28 days old were exposed to different levels of raising temperatures (22, 29, 34, 36 and 40 ºC) for 15 days. At 42 days old, blood samples were collected from 14 birds (7 males + 7 females) that were randomly selected. The samples were used for determining red blood cells count, hemoglobin concentration, packed cell volume, total and differential white blood cells count, heterophils/ lymphocyte (H/L) ratio, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, mean corpuscular volume and mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration. The obtained results indicated that, rearing quail birds under high environmental conditions during fattening period has a great adverse effect on these blood parameters. ...
Wright and Giemsa stains are Romanowsky stains used to stain peripheral blood and bone marrow smears. The most important components of these stains are oxidized methylene blue, azure B and eosin Y dyes. The eosin Y dye stains the cytoplasm of cells an orange to pink color. The methylene blue and azure B dyes stain the nucleus varying shades of blue to purple. Romanowsky stains are used to perform differential white blood cell counts and to study red blood cell morphology. Abnormal granulocyte, lymphocyte or monocyte cell counts may be used to facilitate the diagnosis of diseases such as leukemia or bacterial infections.. ...

Results. The treatment and placebo groups were of similar gestational age (29 ± 3 vs 31 ± 3 weeks) and birth weight (1376 ± 491 vs 1404 ± 508 g), and had similar Apgar scores and 24-hour Score for Neonatal Acute Physiology scores. The mortality rate was not different between treatment and placebo groups. However, the occurrence of a subsequent nosocomial infection was lower in the rG-CSF recipients (relative risk: .19; 95% confidence interval: .05-.78). rG-CSF treatment did not alter the serum concentrations of the cytokines measured (except for G-CSF). Serum G-CSF levels and blood neutrophil counts were higher in the treatment than in the placebo group 24 hours and 48 hours after dosing. ...

Background: Spontaneous ascitic fluid infection (SAI) is an acute infection of ascitic fluid. SAI has three subtypes; SBP, CNNA, MNB. The prototype is Spontaneous bacterial peritonitis (SBP). SBP is a frequent and serious complication in patients with cirrhosis leading to significant mortality and morbidity. Diagnosis of SBP is mainly established by elevated polymorphonuclear leukocyte count and positive ascitic fluid bacterial culture. Methodology: Records of patients with suspected diagnosis of Spontaneous ascitic fluid infection were analyzed in the present study. Patients admitted in the last one year i.e., between January 2014 to December 2014 with ascites secondary to cirrhosis were included. All patients with decompensated cirrhosis had undergone ascitic fluid paracenetesis after admission to the hospital. Ascitic fluid was centrifuged and analyzed for Total protein, Albumin, Total and Differential leukocyte count. Ascitic fluid was cultured by using BacTec method to determine the growth ...
Sweets syndrome, named after the physician who first described the condition, is also known as acute febrile neutrophillic dermatosis. The initial manifestations of this condition are non-specific and often overlooked. These include fever, elevated white blood cell count and flu-like symptoms. As the condition progresses, the patient will abruptly develop numerous tender, red or purple, plaques and papules on the arms, head, neck and trunk. Sweets syndrome is a relatively unusual but not rare dermatologic condition. It demonstrates a female prevalence; occurring about four times more commonly in women than men. The exact mechanism underlying Sweets syndrome is not known at this time. One of the current hypotheses equates the disease to the body developing a hypersensitivity reaction to an underlying infection, autoimmune disease, medication or cancer. The role of the neutrophil, which is a specialized form of white blood cell, in Sweets syndrome is thought to be an inappropriate response to ...
Advanced polycythemia vera (PV) may occur in a subset of patients with elevated hematocrit levels plus elevated white blood cell counts or disease related symptoms, despite treatment with HU at the maximum tolerated dose and phlebotomy.
Septic arthritis of the SI joint is a rare condition representing 1% to 2% of all forms of septic arthritis and bone infections. The source of infection is thought to be from hematogenous spread. The most common positive physical examination signs include maximal tenderness over the SI joint and increased pain with SI joint compression test. Patients will often have a positive straight leg raise because the sacral nerves running anterior to the SI join may be irritated. MRI is the gold standard test to diagnose an early SI joint infection. Laboratory findings typically include an elevated white blood cell count and elevated inflammatory markers (ESR and CRP), and blood cultures will often be positive for the causative bacterial agent. Identifying the responsible bacteria, if possible, helps guide the most appropriate antibiotic coverage. Obtaining an aspiration is extremely difficult due to the anatomy of the SI joint and is generally not attempted, particularly if blood cultures are positive. ...
Introduction: Foreign body ingestion is a common occurrence in both adults and in children. It is usually a benign occurrence with 75.6% of all FB ingestions passing through the GI tract spontaneously. Rarely, does the foreign body perforate the intestinal wall (0.73%). Perforation is difficult to diagnose as history, symptoms, laboratory and imaging tests are often vague and non-specific. Case Presentation: We present a case of a 55 year old Hispanic woman with a 3 day history of abdominal pain associated with anorexia, nausea and one episode of vomiting. Physical examination demonstrated tachycardia at 110 beats per minute, and an obese abdomen that was diffusely tender, with rebound tenderness in the right lower quadrant. Routine laboratory studies revealed an elevated white blood cell count and alkaline phosphatase level. CT of the abdomen demonstrated mural thickening of a small segment of small bowel. No intraperitoneal free air or fluid was seen. After 48 hours, laboratory values returned ...
Cardiovascular events are the leading cause of death in developed countries worldwide, including Taiwan. Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), previously considered merely as one of the risk factors, has been recently unanimously accepted to be coronary artery disease-equivalent. How T2DM may lead to accelerated atherosclerosis remains obscure.. Hyperglycemia with or without hyperinsulinemia may lead to higher oxidative stress and generalized inflammation. The oxidative stress and inflammation may play a significant role in the pathogenesis in diabetic complications, including micro- and macro-vascular complications. Macrophages together with T-lymphocytes are the earliest cell-types found in fatty-streaks, the earliest atherosclerotic lesions. Macrophages are also well known cellular mediators of oxidative stress and inflammation. Therefore, it is plausible to hypothesize that macrophages play a crucial role in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis in patients with T2DM. In addition, the other cell ...

In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content: BOOK REVIEWS The Granulocyte: Function and Clinical Utilization. Progress in Clinical and Biological Research, vol. 13. Edited by Tibor J. Greenwalt and G. A. Jamieson. New York: Alan R. Liss, Inc., 1977. Pp. xiii+341. $30.00. For over 100 years the granulocyte has remained one of the most observed and easily recognized of human cells. Its role in the inflammatory response has long been noted, and granulocyte enumeration in the differential white cell count remains as one of the basic and most useful laboratory tests. In recent years biochemical functional rather than enumerative aspects have been increasingly studied and voluminous data accumulated. The biochemical complexities unraveled to date have led to better understanding and recognition of a variety of diseases associated with qualitative chemical defects. Progress in the blood-banking sciences has allowed for greater ease of production of the subcomponents of whole blood. ...
Total white blood cell (WBC) and neutrophil counts are lower among individuals of African descent due to the common African-derived null variant of the Duffy Antigen Receptor for Chemokines (DARC) gene. Additional common genetic polymorphisms were recently associated with total WBC and WBC sub-type levels in European and Japanese populations. No additional loci that account for WBC variability have been identified in African Americans. In order to address this, we performed a large genome-wide association study (GWAS) of total WBC and cell subtype counts in 16,388 African-American participants from 7 population-based cohorts available in the Continental Origins and Genetic Epidemiology Network. In addition to the DARC locus on chromosome 1q23, we identified two other regions (chromosomes 4q13 and 16q22) associated with WBC in African Americans (P,2.5×10(-8)). The lead SNP (rs9131) on chromosome 4q13 is located in the CXCL2 gene, which encodes a chemotactic cytokine for polymorphonuclear ...

Objectives: The present study was undertaken to evaluate and highlight the importance of hematological scoring system (HSS) in the early detection of neonatal sepsis. Materials and Methods: The cross-sectional study enrolled 110 neonates who were clinically suspected of infection (study group) and normal neonates for comparison (controls), during the 1 st week of life. All peripheral blood smears were analyzed using HSS of Rodwell et al., by pathologists blinded to the infection status of the newborns. HSS assigns a score of 1 for each of seven findings significantly associated with sepsis: Abnormal total leukocyte count, abnormal total polymorphonuclear neutrophils (PMN) count, elevated immature PMN count, elevated immature: Total (I:T) PMN ratio, immature: Mature (I:M) PMN ratio ≥0.3, platelet count ≤150,000/mm 3 , and pronounced degenerative or toxic changes in PMNs. Score of ≤2 was interpreted as sepsis unlikely; score 3-4: Sepsis is possible and ≥5 sepsis or infection is very ...

On examination he was thin and mildly pyrexial at 37.5°C. Scarring from his recent attack of shingles was present on the left anterior thigh in the distribution of the L2 dermatome. The oral cavity was clear. Bilaterally, shotty, non-tender lymph nodes were present in the cervical, axillary, and inguinal regions. There were no cardiovascular or respiratory abnormalities. In the abdomen he had a large, tender, irregular non-mobile right iliac fossa mass that was dull to percussion which extended from the pelvis to below the level of the umbilicus. No other masses were palpable. Neurological examination was unremarkable.. Baseline investigations showed the haemoglobin was 10.7 g/dl, total white cell count was 3.2 × 109/l, and platelet count was 122 × 109/l. The mean cell volume was low at 75 fl with a ferritin level within normal limits. The aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and albumin were abnormal at 75 IU/l (normal range 0-37 IU/l) and 29 g/l (normal range 33-47 g/l) respectively, and the ...
I was diagnosed with stage 1, grade 1 endometrial cancer in August. I had a total hysterectomy with removal of ovaries and Fallopian tubes. I was told I was cured a few weeks after the surgery and needed no chemo or radiation. Before the hysterectomy I was diagnosed with a UTI and given antibiotics. In September I noticed some blood in my urine and I felt like I had a UTI. I went to Urgent Care and a urinalysis showed elevated white blood cells and blood in the urine. I again was given antibiotics but got no relief from my symptoms. The next week I went back to Urgent Care and the doctor pulled up my urine culture results from before the hysterectomy and from the UTI she had treated me for the week before, and the results were negative. I had another UA done that day which still indicated a UTI so I was given antibiotics again. A few days later the doctor called me and said the culture was negative and to discontinue the antibiotics. She said I should see a urologist. I got in a week later with ...
Due to the fact that the child is most often exposed to helminth infection, and the study of feces for parasite eggs is not always sufficiently informative, parents are usually recommended that children with suspected disability submit a general blood test andEIA.It is they who with the greatest accuracy will help to define worms in childrens organisms. Most of all, the helminths, such as pinworms and ascarids, affect the change in the indices in this study conducted in children. They can be determined by reduced hemoglobin or elevated white blood cells. Parents should know that it is possible to take a blood test for worms from a child in a private or public laboratory. The prices for this procedure in both institutions are approximately the same and quite low. The only thing that is required is the availability of special equipment that is designed to identify various types of worms in the childs body by blood. Also, remember that the baby should not be fed for 8 hours before the test. He ...
was found in FFP, PS or Carprofen treated animals (p,0.05). In a sTNFR1 blocking experiment, incubation of HFP with anti-sTNFR1 antibody resulted in significant increases in neutrophil numbers and TNFα levels, which suggests that the anti-TNFα activity observed in HFP may be due to elevated levels of sTNFR1. The data also revealed a significant inverse correlation between total leukocyte counts and sTNFR1 levels present in pouch fluid (r=−0.73, p,0.0001). Our observations suggest that HFP warrants further investigation as a possible means for modulating acute inflammatory processes where TNFα is a key mediator.. ...

However, these reports included heterogeneous populations with different grafts and GVHD prophylaxis. Therefore, we retrospectively evaluated the association of ALC30 with transplant outcomes in a cohort of 381 consecutive patients who underwent AHSCT between 2005 and 2010 and received T-replete PBSC grafts and Tacrolimus/Mycophenolate combination as GVHD prophylaxis. Median follow-up was 57 months. ...
Differential count of white blood cells (WBC) provides information on the profile of their components. There has not been done any hematological research in the alpine species Alpine Accentor (P. collaris) yet. The research found out the dependence of changes in profile of WBC count in the relation to the sex, age and year period. The most changes in the number of WBC were found in the lymphocytes and heterophils. It has been proved, that those changes are not related to sex, but are related to the age of individual. The proportion of lymphocytes was in juveniles 64% and in adults 51.9%. The proportion of heterophils was in juve-niles 33.7% and in adults 38.6%. Seasonal changes in the WBC profile were also notified. The shifts of leucocyte values were recorded during spring, summer and autumn. In the spring period the number of hetrophils decreased (32.42%) in the comparison to the autumn levels (58.43%), while in case of lymphocytes the trend was inverted (in spring 45.24%, and in autumn ...

There were no treatment-related effects on mortality. In most cases there were no effects on body weight although in one replicate experiment a decrease in weight was observed in the high dose group and body weight gain was decreased over the 2 week post-exposure. Spleen weights were increased in all gallium arsenide treated groups while thymus weights were decreased at the high dose (Table 1). A dose-response increase in lung weights occurred following treatment but none of the individual values were significant. The lungs were characterized by darkened areas consisting of lymphocyte and macrophage infiltration. There was a tendency (not significant) for a treatment-related decrease in peripheral leukocyte counts (Table 1) which was associated with a significant decrease in peripheral lymphocyte counts in the 200 mg/kg treatment group (not shown).. The immune and bone marrow studies are also summarized in Table 1. Gallium arsenide suppressed the following immune parameters dose- dependently: ...

Abstract: The immunostimulatory effect of the ethanolic extract of Cassia alata was tested on Swiss albino rats infected with Staphylococcus aureus by evaluating the White Blood Cells (WBC), Packed Cell Volume and total differential WBC count. The rats were in 6 groups of 2 animals per cage. The first group was given the standard inoculum but not treated. The second group was given the standard inoculum and treated with the extract. The third group was given Cassia alata ethanolic extract only while the control was given normal saline. Increase in White Blood Count (WBC) from 5000 to 7600 mm3, decrease in Packed Cell Volume (PCV) from 51 to 21% and increase in neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio indicates active infection in the infected-untreated group. In the group treated with extract there was lower White Blood Count (WBC) of 5000 and 2900 mm3 before and during infection, respectively. Decrease in neutrophil-lymphocyte ratio indicates suppression of infection/inhibition of proliferation of ...
Objective: To study determinants of incident hyperglycaemia in rural Indian mothers 6 years after delivery.. Research Design and Methods: The Pune Maternal Nutrition Study (PMNS) collected information in 6 villages near Pune on pre-pregnant characteristics, and nutrition, physical activity and glucose tolerance during pregnancy. An oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) was repeated 6 years after delivery.. Results: Five hundred and ninety seven mothers had an OGTT at 28 weeks gestation; 3 had gestational diabetes (GDM, WHO 1999 criteria). Six years later, 42 of 509 originally normal glucose tolerant mothers were hyperglycemic (8 diabetic, 20 IGT and 14 IFG). The hyperglycemic women had shorter legs and thicker skinfolds before pregnancy (p,0.01, both) and were less active and more hyperglycemic (2-hour plasma glucose 4.8 vs. 4.4 mmol/L, p,0.001) during pregnancy. They had gained more weight during follow up (6.0 vs. 2.7 kg, p,0.001). Multivariate analysis revealed that total leucocyte count and ...
Low Eosinophils Count is also known as Eosinopenia, it occurs when the Eosinophils count is less than 50 cells/µL of human blood.. The normal white blood cell count of Eosinophils range between 450 cells/µL in infants to 200 cells/µL in adults.. Low Eosinophils count may occur due to the same causes of Leukopenia such like aplastic anemia and HIV.. Eosinophil is also reduced in the circulating blood in cases of Severe Infections, Shocks, and Adrenocortical Stimulation.. Eosinopenia is also a sing of stress and Cushings Disease since the Eosinophils are reduced due to the presence of Adrenocortical Hormones such like cortisol and aldosterone. Treatments with corticosteroids is also a cause of low Eosinophils count for the same reason.. ...

N2 - The evaluation of minimal residual disease (MRD) in chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL) has evolved in parallel with the enormous progresses in the therapeutic armamentarium and the application of cutting-edge diagnostic techniques the CLL community witnessed in the past few years. Minimal residual disease is considered an objective measure of disease status defined by the number of residual leukemic cells detected in a sample of peripheral blood and/or bone marrow as proportion of the total white blood cells and defined undetectable if fewer than 1 CLL cell among 10,000 white blood cells (10-4 or 0.01%) is detected. In this review, we aim at shedding light on how to evaluate MRD, what we already know about MRD from the experience with chemoimmunotherapy, and why MRD evaluation remains still relevant in the era of ...

Why It Occurs. A person with cancer can develop a low WBC count from the cancer or from treatment for the cancer. Cancer may be in the bone marrow, causing fewer neutrophils to be made. The WBC count can also go down when cancer is treated with chemotherapy drugs, which slow bone marrow production of healthy WBCs.. ...
