The leukocyte count and cancer mortality.
A previous report that the leukocyte count was related to mortality from cancer was evaluated in two large groups of multiphasic health examinees in the San Francisco Bay area, California - a cohort of about 25,000 persons followed up for mortality and a cohort of about 160,000 persons followed up for cancer incidence between 1964 and 1980.
The leukocyte count was related to mortality from all cancers, smoking-related cancers, and cancers that were not smoking-related, but it was not related to cancer mortality in nonsmokers.
