Conclusions: The mean duration for recovery from leukopenia with G-CSF treatment in neonatal sepsis was less than 2 days and had no significant relationship with pre-GCSF absolute neutrophil count. The neutrophilic response was significantly higher in neutropenic compared to non-neutropenic neonates.
Hemoglobin level less than 10 g/dl, Absolute neutrophil counts less than 1.5X103/L and platelet count less than 150X109/ L2,13 were included in this study.
During this period, his laboratory examination revealed WBC count of O.64 x [10.sup.9]/L (absolute neutrophil count, O.43 x [10.sup.9]/L); a hemoglobin level of 10.7 g/ dl; and a platelet count of 31.8 x [10.sup.9]/L.
A nonlinear mixed effects pharmacokinetic/pharmacodynamic modeling approach was used to analyze absolute neutrophil count to determine turnover rate of ANC with Plinabulin and without Plinabulin.
Total leucocyte count, platelet count and absolute neutrophil count was obtained from automated electronic cell counter.
Laboratory investigations showed normal absolute neutrophil count and absolute lymphocyte count, and hypokalaemia with normal renal function.
All subjects were being followed up as CSA and the diagnosis was made with severe bacterial infections which started in the early period and with an absolute neutrophil count below 500/[mm.sup.3] in the peripheral blood.
Haemoglobin was 10 gm/dl, neutrophils 8%, absolute neutrophil count 0.5 x [10.sup.9] /l; ESR 110 mm/h; HIV ELISA and VDRL were negative; and serum immunoglobulin levels were normal.
Blood smear examination showed marked RBC agglutination, few spherocytes, neutropenia with an absolute neutrophil count (ANC) of 50/[micro]L, and Wuchereria bancrofti microfilariae (Figure 1a).
Unless the giant platelets were numerous concurrent with a very low white count, the impact to the white count and then subsequent clinically significant change in WBC and associated values, such as the absolute neutrophil count, are minor.
A prospective study comparing the diagnostic value of C-reactive protein level, absolute neutrophil count, and white blood cell count analyzed 77 children aged 1-35 months; 14 (18%) had a serious bacterial infection (Pediatrics 1 08{6]: 1275-79, 2001).
