Definitions for "ANC"
see Absolute Neutrophil Count
absolute neutrophil count; neutrophils help the body fight infections. When the ANC is low, a patient is susceptible to infection.
The number of neutrophils in the blood, measured by cells per cubic millimeter. ANC is determined by adding the percentage of neutrophils in the blood with the percentage of bands in the blood, multiplying that number by the white blood count and dividing the product by 100. This number represents the amount of neutrophils, which are available for defending the body at the time of the blood test. A normal ANC for a non-neutropenic person is generally within the range of 1800-7000.
