Positive chemotaxis leukocytes pinpoint areas of damage by following chemical trails released by damages cells. Leukocytosis (cid:271)ody"s respo(cid:374)se to (cid:271)a(cid:272)terial or (cid:448)iral i(cid:374)(cid:448)asio(cid:374) number can double in hrs. Spherical, larger than rbc lobed nuclei, cytoplasmic granules. Cytoplasm contains 2 types of granules that take up both acidic and basic dyes granules contain hydrolytic enzymes and antibiotic-like proteins (defensins) Numbers increase during acute bacterial infections such as meningitis and appendicitis.
