These lab results include the levels of immune neutrophils, lymphocytes, and monocytes, and of proteins C-reactive protein and albumin. The study, “Novel mortality-predicting index at diagnosis can effectively predict all-cause mortality in patients with antineutrophil cytoplasmic antibody-associated vasculitis,” was published in the Journal of…
