Neutrophils

3D Rendering of a Neutrophil

Neutrophils are the most 'abundant' cells found in the blood stream. Although there are proportionately fewer neutrophils in the blood, most of these cells are recruited in the bone marrow, they perform a crucial task: to defend the body against infections and inflammation. Nuetrophils accomplish this by phagocytosis, the process of cells consuming other particles.
