A sex difference in the leucocyte count


, : A sex difference in the leucocyte count. Journal of Clinical Pathology 21(6): 691-694

In a study of a group of 325 blood donors between the ages of 18 and 65 years, the total leucocyte and polymorph counts of the females aged 50 to 65 years were found to be significantly lower than those of the corresponding group of male donors. In the whole series of female donors, there were significantly lower total leucocyte and lymphocyte counts with increasing age and a less significant (P [unk] 0.1) fall in the polymorph count. No age variation in the male counts was found. Analysis of large numbers of leucocyte counts performed on hospital patients has confirmed the sex difference in the total leucocyte count found in the blood donors. The factors responsible for the differences are discussed.

Autophagy is a major cellular pathway used to degrade long-lived proteins or organelles that may be damaged due to increased reactive oxygen species (ROS) generated by cellular stress.

With the use of the vital dye Chlorazol Black E the location and behavior of five species of mycoplasmas and a stable L form of group A -hemolytic streptococcus were studied in various continous cell lines. The mycoplasmas and L forms were shown t...

Shortening of telomeres has been hypothesized to contribute to cellular senescence and may play a role in carcinogenesis of human cells. Furthermore, activation of telomerase has frequently been demonstrated in tumor-derived and in vitro immortali...
