Neutrophils

Summary Information: Neutrophils

Neutrophils: Neutrophils are a type of white blood cell. Neutrophils are produced rapidly during an infection and have the ability to digest potentially harmful infectious pathogens, primarily bacteria and fungi. This process is call phagocytosis. A large response by neutrophils to an infection results in the formation of pus. Conditions that can afflict the neutrophils include leukemia, leukopenia, neutropenia, neutrophilic leukocytosis, autoimmune disorders, corticosteroid use, cancer, and chemotherapy.
