Leukocyte changes in chickens with turpentine-induced inflammation were investigated sequentially at 0, 6, 12, and 24 hours and at 2, 3, 4, 7, and 14 days. During acute inflammation, significant leukocytosis and heterophilia developed by 6 hours and persisted through 7 days. The peak mean heterophil and leukocyte counts occurred at 12 hours and 3 days, respectively. Left shifts were present at 12 and 24 hours as detected by 100-cell leukocyte differential counts. Heterophil mean nuclear scores… CONTINUE READING
