Monitoring of inflammation status can be easily achieved at a clinic using laboratory testing for WBCs, neutrophils, granulocytes, and so on Therefore, in the present study, we tried to get some clues from routine blood test results for the prognosis of pancreatic cancer.
The existence of complement-dependent IgM antibodies against granulocytes in the serum of a patient who was receiving ATDs and suddenly developed agranulocytosis was reported, but antibody-mediated cytotoxicity was evident only against granulocytes taken from 2 of the 8 donors, suggesting that only a subset of patients receiving ATD may be susceptible to agranulocytosis [17].
