Neutrophils are the most abundant white blood cells and are indispensable for host defense. Recently, they have also been implicated in immune regulation and suppression. The latter functions seem hard to reconcile with the widely held view that neutrophils are very short‐lived, with a circulatory half‐life of <7 h. To reopen the discussion on the average neutrophil half‐life, we review and discuss experiments performed in the 1950s, 1960s, and 1970s, as well as recent in vivo labeling… Expand
The Neutrophil Life Cycle.
TLDR
An update on the dynamic distribution of neutrophils across tissues in health and disease is provided, differences between humans and model organisms are emphasized, and issues to be addressed to exploit the unique features of neutrophic cells in the clinic are highlighted. Expand
Dimensions of neutrophil life and fate.
TLDR
Early and recent work is highlighted that will help the reader appreciate the current view of the neutrophil life cycle -from maturation to elimination-, and how neutrophils behave and dynamically modulate tissue immunity, both in steady-state and in disease. Expand
Traps and hyper inflammation – new ways that neutrophils promote or hinder survival
  • M. Gunzer
  • Biology, Medicine
  • British journal of haematology
  • 2014
TLDR
Very recent findings on how neutrophils can control the spread of pathogens and mediate their killing by mechanisms such as formation of DNA nets, how they influence tumour growth and adaptive immune responses and how they manoeuvre inside the diverse compartments of the body are discussed. Expand
Review: Neutrophils as Invigorated Targets in Rheumatic Diseases
TLDR
Neutrophils are now recognized as being major orchestrators of inflammation and as having a strong influence on the phenotype and function of other innate and adaptive immune cells. Expand
The balancing act of neutrophils.
TLDR
The generalities of neutrophil cells are reviewed as well as the difficulties encountered when trying to unravel them mechanistically and how neutrophils develop and their function in infection are focused on. Expand
The Ontogeny of a Neutrophil: Mechanisms of Granulopoiesis and Homeostasis
TLDR
Neutrophil ontogeny, granulopoiesis, and neutrophil homeostasis are detailed and important differences between neonatal and adult neutrophils populations are highlighted based on fetal maturation and environmental factors. Expand
How Long Does a Neutrophil Live?—The Effect of 24 h Whole Blood Storage on Neutrophil Functions in Pigs
TLDR
It was observed that the number of isolated neutrophils decreased over time, indicating cell death occurs during 24 h of blood storage, however, the surviving neutrophil isolated from stored blood reacted comparably or even showed enhanced antimicrobial activity in the case of phagocytosis of Streptococcus (S.) suis, ROS production, and transmigration. Expand
Neutrophil phenotypes in health and disease
TLDR
The current literature describing the heterogeneity within the neutrophil compartment with respect to both phenotype and function in health and disease is reviewed. Expand
Fatty acids as modulators of neutrophil recruitment, function and survival.
TLDR
In this review, the effects of fatty acids pertaining to five classes, namely, long-chain saturated fatty acids (LCSFAs), short-chain fatty acid (SCFAs), and omega-3, omega-6 (n-6) and Omega-9 ( n-9) unsaturated fatty acids, on neutrophils and the relevance of these effects for disease development are discussed. Expand
Social networking of human neutrophils within the immune system.
TLDR
Novel aspects of neutrophil biology have shed new light not only on the potential complex roles that neutrophils play during inflammation and immune responses, but also in the pathogenesis of several inflammatory disorders including infection, autoimmunity, and cancer. Expand

Neutrophil kinetics in health and disease
TLDR
Current understanding of how neutrophils are released from the bone marrow is outlined, in particular, the role of the CXC chemokine receptor 4/stromal-derived factor 1 axis and the relative size and role of freely circulating and marginated pools within the vascular compartment are outlined. Expand
In vivo labeling with 2H2O reveals a human neutrophil lifespan of 5.4 days.
TLDR
It is shown that in vivo labeling in humans with the use of (2)H(2)O under homeostatic conditions showed an average circulatory neutrophil lifespan of 5.4 days, which is at least 10 times longer than previously reported and might lead to reappraisal of novel neutrophils functions in health and disease. Expand
The intravascular survival of neutrophils labeled in vivo.
TLDR
Under these conditions, neutrophils were shown to leave the blood in a random exponential fashion, with half-disappearance times of between 6.4 and 7.5 hr. Expand
Regulation of neutrophil trafficking from the bone marrow
TLDR
Recent data demonstrating a central role for the chemokines CXCL12 and CXCR2 in regulating neutrophil egress from the bone marrow will be discussed. Expand
Regulation of eosinophil and neutrophil apoptosis – similarities and differences
  • H. Simon
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Immunological reviews
  • 2001
TLDR
There are differences in the regulation of apoptosis between these granulocyte subtypes that include both expression and function of Bcl‐2 and caspase family members, which may help to define new molecular targets that allow specific induction of either eosinophil or neutrophil apoptosis by pharmacological means. Expand
Timing of neutrophil tissue repopulation predicts restoration of innate immune protection in a murine bone marrow transplantation model.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that protection against bacterial infection is conferred at the time of neutrophil tissue delivery, which always occurs before neutrophils are detected in the blood, and it is concluded that neutrophIL tissue recovery is an early measure of the restoration of cellular innate immune function after BMT. Expand
Identification of a phenotypically and functionally distinct population of long‐lived neutrophils in a model of reverse endothelial migration
TLDR
It is demonstrated that neutrophils can migrate in a retrograde direction across endothelial cells and suggested that a population of tissue‐experienced neutrophil with a distinct phenotype and function are present in the peripheral circulation in humans in vivo. Expand
Neutrophil kinetics in man.
TLDR
Neutrophil maturational categories, defined by morphologic criteria, were supported by autoradiographs of marrow flashed-labeled with 3H-thymidine and diisopropylfluorophosphate-32P and correlated well with the calculation of marrow neutrophil production. Expand
Just how big is the pulmonary granulocyte pool?
  • A. Peters
  • Biology, Medicine
  • Clinical science
  • 1998
TLDR
Compromises based on technical considerations permit reconciliation of the literature, and an overall whole-body model of granulocyte distribution is proposed with which all the existing data are broadly compatible. Expand
Analytical Review: The Kinetics of Granulopoiesis in Normal Man
TLDR
A kinetic model for granulopoiesis, based on the studies with the DFP 32 label, is presented, which depicts myelocytes as approaching a self-perpetuating population of cells. Expand
