Eosinophilia News and Research

RSS
Eosinophils are a type of blood cells which helps to fight off certain infections and participates in the body’s immune reactions. Eosinophilia is a condition in which the peripheral blood contains an excessive number of eosinophils, more than 500/µL. It may be classified into mild (500-1500/µL); moderate (1500-5000/µL); and severe (over 5000/µL) eosinophilia.
