  1. White blood cell count and stroke incidence and death : the NHANES I epidemiology follow-up study.

    Article - En anglais

    A 1982 report (J Chronic Dis 1982 ; 35 : 703-14) that a relatively high white blood cell (WBC) count predicted increased incidence of cerebral thrombosis could not establish whether this association was independent of smoking.

    Therefore, the authors examined data from the First National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES I) Epidemiologic Follow-up Study, conducted in 1971 1987, to assess WBC count as a risk factor for stroke in a sample of the US population.

    White men with a WBC count of>8,100 cells/mm3 had a 39% increase in age-adjusted stroke incidence compared with those with a WBC count of<6,600 CELLS/MM3.
