The meaning of BASO abs

May 22, 2004

Could you please explain what BASO abs is? My reading was 0.2 which seems to be high. Should I be worried?

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Basophils are a type of white blood cell that is involved in fighting infections and in allergic reactions. They usually make up < 1% of white blood cells. That number is not high.

I am unphenotypable. Why and how common is this?
