  • cells
  • 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. (wbccount.org)
  • Immunosuppressive agents (drugs that reduce the production of white cells) and overwhelming infections will decrease the count of Monocytes in the blood. (wbccount.org)
  • If the diagnosis of CLL is based on the B cell count rather than the total lymphocyte count (which includes both B and T cells), many patients formerly diagnosed with Rai Stage 0 CLL would instead be classified as having MBL. (wikipedia.org)
  • Antibody
  • Lymphocytes include natural killer cells (Phagocytes) (which function in cell-mediated, cytotoxic innate immunity), T cells (for cell-mediated, cytotoxic adaptive immunity), and B cells (for humoral, antibody-driven adaptive immunity). (wikipedia.org)
  • Patients
  • This study will evaluate HIV-negative patients with unusually low levels of CD4+ T lymphocytes (a type of white blood cell) to learn more about the clinical symptoms, cause, immunology, and biology of this problem. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • Researchers discover that lymphocyte count indicates prognosis of patients with renal cell. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Now, researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center have discovered that the lymphocyte countwhich is routinely measured in laboratory testsis a simple and effective prognostic indicator in patients with renal cell carcinoma (RCC). (bio-medicine.org)
  • RCC patients generally have a worse prognosis if they have a suppressed immune system, which is indicated by low lymphocyte levels. (bio-medicine.org)
  • By evaluating data from more than 500 patients with the most common form of RCCcalled clear cell RCCwho had their kidneys surgically removed at Fox Chase between 1994 and 2009, Al-Saleem and his colleagues found a clear relationship between low lymphocyte counts within three months prior to surgery and a poor prognosis. (bio-medicine.org)
  • For example, about half of RCC patients are over 60 years old, and if one of these patients has other health problems and a normal lymphocyte count, a doctor may decide to monitor the patient rather than perform surgery. (bio-medicine.org)
  • Results More than half (54.9%, 485/883) of all HIV positive patients presented with CD4 count of less than 250 cells/mm3. (bmj.com)
  • Less than a quarter (18.8%, 116/883) of patients came with CD4 count of 500 cells/mm3 or more. (bmj.com)
  • The study, however, did find an increased number of patients with higher intraepithelial lymphocytes (IELs, a type of white bloodcell) in the oat-eating cohort. (wikipedia.org)
  • autoimmune
  • Low lymphocyte counts can also be caused by diseases such as autoimmune disorders, infectious diseases, blood cancer, steroid therapy, chemotherapy treatments and radiation treatments. (reference.com)
  • lymphocytopenia
  • Some people who have inherited genetic diseases are more prone to get lymphocytopenia, which is the name for the condition of having a low lymphocyte count. (reference.com)
  • There are certain conditions, either inherited or acquired, that can cause problems leading to lymphocytopenia, or low counts of lymphocytes, states the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. (reference.com)
  • Low CD4+ T-cells in the absence of known etiology has been called idiopathic CD4+ T lymphocytopenia, and a case definition was established by the CDC as a CD4 count less than 300 cells/mL on 2 consecutive samples in a patient uninfected by HIV and with no other disease or treatment that might provide a reasonable alternative explanation for CD4 lymphocytopenia. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • tumor
  • They also found that low counts were associated with a lower overall survival rate, even when they accounted for patient age, tumor stage and metastasis. (bio-medicine.org)
  • thymus
  • Immunologically important lymphocyte that is not thymus-dependent, is either short-lived and naive or long-lived and of memory phenotype, and resembles the bursa-derived lymphocyte of birds in that it is responsible for the production of immunoglobulins. (fpnotebook.com)
  • Leukocytosis
  • and leukocytosis in which eosinophil count is elevated is eosinophilia. (wikipedia.org)
  • An extreme form of leukocytosis, in which the WBC count exceeds 100,000/µL, is leukostasis. (wikipedia.org)
  • For lung diseases such as pneumonia and tuberculosis, WBC count is very important for the diagnosis of the disease, as leukocytosis is usually present. (wikipedia.org)
  • blood
  • A low hemoglobin count, also known as anemia, is caused by pregnancy, a menstrual period, a diet low in iron, blood loss, or a disease that causes the body. (reference.com)
  • Types of blood test include a full or complete blood count, erythrocyte sedimentation rate and blood metabolic panel, according to the National Heart, Lung. (reference.com)
  • Increased inflammation in the body also affects the number of lymphocytes circulating in the blood. (reference.com)
  • Family members will have 60 cc (4 tablespoons) of blood drawn to determine CD4+ T cell counts. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The number of leukocytes in the blood is often an indicator of disease, and thus the WBC count is an important subset of the complete blood count. (wikipedia.org)
  • test
  • The purpose of this study is to test the safety of an investigational medication, TXA127, and its ability to increase T-lymphocyte counts, specifically CD4+ T-lymphocytes, in persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus who are taking highly active anti-retroviral therapy. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • cell
  • Specifically, it remains challenging to obtain comprehensive information on the clonal composition of small lymphocyte populations, such as Ag-specific, functional, or tissue-resident cell subsets isolated by sorting, microdissection, or fine needle aspirates. (sigmaaldrich.com)
  • lineage
  • In CLL, the lymphocytes are genetically clonal, of the B cell lineage (expressing marker molecules clusters of differentiation 19 and 20), and characteristically express the marker molecules CD5 and CD23. (wikipedia.org)
  • immune
  • Low WBC count or leucopenia on the other hand can indicate the side effects of certain diseases and even medical interventions such as chemotherapy, radiation therapy and some immune dysfunctions or disorders. (healthforworld.com)
  • Opportunistic infections caused by Feline Leukemia Virus and Feline immunodeficiency virus retroviral infections can be treated with Lymphocyte T-Cell Immune Modulator. (wikipedia.org)
  • Mature lymphocytes are part of the specific immune system because they recognize previous invaders and assist the body in attacking these invaders. (wikipedia.org)
  • five
  • On 28 January 2010, a five-member statutory tribunal of the GMC found three dozen charges proved, including four counts of dishonesty and 12 counts involving the abuse of developmentally challenged children. (wikipedia.org)
  • disease
  • Quality control demands the resultant concentrate be 1.0 × 1010 granulocytes in 75% of the units tested and that the product be irradiated to avoid graft-versus-host disease (inactivate lymphocytes). (wikipedia.org)
  • research
  • She then joined the European Laboratory for Non-Linear Spectroscopy, Florence, Italy for post-doctoral research with Prof. Francesco Pavone, working on lymphocyte movement and laser microsurgery on the mitotic spindle. (wikipedia.org)
