ⓘ Neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio

In medicine neutrophil to lymphocyte ratio is used as a marker of subclinical inflammation. It is calculated by dividing the number of neutrophils by number of lymphocytes, usually from peripheral blood sample, but sometimes also from cells that infiltrate tissue, such as tumor. Recently Lymphocyte Monocyte ratio has also been studied as a marker of inflammation including Tuberculosis and various cancers.
