Change in platelet function and in total or differential blood leukocyte counts
and platelet count for an IQR increase in recent outdoor [PM.
Conclusion: Patients with C difficile colitis and a leukocyte count
greater than 35 X [10.
Total leukocyte counts
in all patients ranged from 0.
To evaluate the correlation between expected and determined allele frequencies <10% and >80%,2 samples of known genotypes were mixed based on DNA concentration and leukocyte count
, generating samples of known, gradually increasing allele frequencies (mix experiments: Fig.
After excluding the participants for whom the given measurement data were not available (not measured or participant nonfasting) or [in C-reactive protein (CRP) analyses only] who had CRP concentrations [greater than or equal to]10 mg/dL (possible acute inflammation), the number of participants for study of year 0 carotenoids and year 0 leukocyte counts
was 4580; numbers associated with other analyses are provided in Tables 1-4.
Oral metronidazole therapy was started, resulting in improvement of the patient's gastrointestinal symptoms, a gradual decrease in the leukocyte count
, and stools becoming negative for the presence of C difficile toxin by day 4 (Table 1).
Laboratory examination revealed a leukocyte count
Serum concentrations of markers of inflammation, including C-reactive protein (CRP), and the leukocyte count
are powerful predictors for the development of coronary heart disease (1-7).
Poor prognostic features include a high leukocyte count
([greater than or equal to]20 x [10.

The serum ALP activity was correlated with the leukocyte count
(Spearman r = 0.
Laboratory testing (reference ranges) showed leukocyte count
