In contradistinction to the polynuclear neutrophil elements, these mononuclear forms shew no amœboid movement on the warm stage.
The number of polynuclear leucocytes in the blood of the healthy adult amounts to about 70-72%, of the total white corpuscles.
The diminution is chiefly at the expense of the polynuclear cells.
In triacid preparations the granulation is unstained, and the mast cells appear as clear, polynuclear cells, free from granules.
We cannot regard the perinuclear green granules, described by Neusser in the polynuclear cells, as pre-existing.
Here also the same process of ripening can be seen in the polynuclear eosinophil leucocytes.
This elimination of the granules is probably one of the most important functions of the polynuclear leucocytes.
polynuclear neutrophil leucocytosis, is the most frequent of all forms of active leucocytoses.
These polynuclear cells possess above all other elements the power of emigration.
By eosinophilia we understand an increase only of the polynuclear eosinophil cells in the blood.
polynuclear pol·y·nu·cle·ar (pŏl'ē-nōō'klē-ər, -nyōō'-) or pol·y·nu·cle·ate (-klē-ĭt) or pol·y·nu·cle·at·ed (-klē-ā'tĭd)
