Evaluation of the Neutrophil: Lymphocyte Ratio as an Indicator of Chronic Distress in the Laboratory Rodent

Speaker

Abstract

Assessment of how changes in husbandry affect an animal can be challenging as most common methods of assessment, such as corticosterone levels, are more reliable for assessment of acute stress. Our laboratory has evaluated and characterized the neutrophil: lymphocyte ratio as a more sensitive tool for assessment of chronic distress. In this talk, we will review the effectiveness of the neutorphil: lymphocyte ratio.
