lym·pho·cyte

 (lĭm′fə-sīt′)
n.
Any of a class of white blood cells of the vertebrate immune system, including the B cells, T cells, and natural killer cells, that in mammals derive from a common progenitor in the bone marrow and are found chiefly in lymph, lymphoid tissues, and blood.

lymphocyte

(ˈlɪmfəʊˌsaɪt)
n
(Biochemistry) a type of white blood cell formed in lymphoid tissue. See also B-lymphocyte, T-lymphocyte
lymphocytic adj

a type of white blood cell important in the production of antibodies. Compare B cell (def. 1), T cell.

lym`pho•cyt′ic (-ˈsɪt ɪk) adj.

lym·pho·cyte

(lĭm′fə-sīt′)
Any of various white blood cells that function in the body's immune system by recognizing and deactivating specific foreign substances called antigens. Certain lymphocytes (called B cells) act by stimulating the production of antibodies. Others (T cells) contain receptors on their cell surfaces that are capable of recognizing and binding to specific antigens.

Recommended monitoring was according to provincial guidelines: HIV-1 RNA after 6 and 12 months on treatment and then annually if suppressed or 3-6-monthly if not suppressed, CD4+ lymphocyte count annually until >200 cells/[micro]L, and monitoring of serum creatinine and full blood count recommended in patients on TDF and AZT, respectively.
A high correlation has been detected between the NLR and acute coronary syndrome, non-ST myocardial infarcts, ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes, pulmonary embolisms, and several types of cancer (5-7), while the platelet-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) is calculated through the division of absolute platelet count by lymphocyte count.
Many clinical and laboratory markers have been used to estimate the progression of the disease like HIV related symptoms, Plasma HIV RNA load, p24 Antigen assay, depletion of CD4 counts, Total lymphocyte count, Haemoglobin levels, Body Mass Index, serum Albumin levels, neopterin levels, cutaneous anergy, elevated levels of b2 microglobulin, etc.
Clinical and laboratory data were collected from the case records retrospectively; the variables recorded included age at diagnosis, time from onset of symptoms to admission, organs involved, urinary red blood cell count, 24-h urinary protein, white blood cell count, lymphocyte count, hemoglobin level, platelet count, initial serum creatinine, erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR), C-reactive protein (CRP), and complement 3 (C3).
The role of neutrophyl lymphocyte count ratio as an inflammatory marker in systemic lupus erythematosus.
For comparison of normally distributed data (age, body mass index, lymphocyte count, white blood cell count, red blood cell count, hematocrit, platelet count and mean corpuscular volume) between groups, single t-test were used; and for comparison of non-normally distributed data (Neutrophil count, neutrophil count, platelet/lymphocyte ratio, hemoglobin, red blood cell distribution width, mean platelet volume, mean hemoglobin concentration, mean hemoglobin and platelet distribution width), we used Mann-Whitney U-test.
Meanwhile, the decreased lymphocyte count and RANTES level demonstrated the bad aspect of immunosuppression following cardiac surgery.
Seven grade 3 adverse events were seen in three patients (1 hypokalemia, 1 anemia, 1 neutrophil count decreased, 2 lymphocyte count decrease, 1 ALP increase and 1 cholangitis).
3 Antiretroviral therapy reduces the viral load by inhibiting the viral replication and results in the reconstitution of the immune system alongwith the increase in CD4+ lymphocyte count.
In this study, Kwon et al found that lymphocyte count was associated with Gleason score upgrading and neutrophil count was associated with biochemical failure; NLR was not found to have association with any of the study endpoints.
