Absolute neutrophil count (ANC) - Normal Range

The number of neutrophils (a type of white blood cell) in a sample of your blood. Neutrophils play an important role in your immune system by destroying bacteria. If you have a low ANC, this could be a sign of a condition called neutropenia, which can be a side effect of some MM treatments, and may put you at a higher risk of infection. If this happens, your doctor may make adjustments to your treatment plan to help increase your neutrophils.

Normal range of absolute neutrophil count is 1.5-7.0 x 109/L.
