- (White-blooded) The crocodile icefish or white-blooded fish (Channichthyidae) are a family of perciform fish found in the cold waters around Antarctica and southern South America. Fifteen species of crocodile icefish are known. They feed on krill, copepods, and other fish.

Logos Nutritionals Complete Thymic Formula – 180 Captabs
Complete Thymic Formula – Build Your Immune System Naturally! Thymic Formula has produced real and exciting health benefits to people who need to regulate their immune system through the reactivation of the thymus gland – the master gland of immunity. Supporting the thymus gland nourishes and strengthens the body’s natural defense system by influencing the number and function of WBC’s -White Blood Cells/T-cells. Dr. Burgstiner’s Complete Thymic Formula and Vitamin/Mineral Complex combines cutting edge nutritional support for the thymus gland. It is perhaps the most comprehensive all natural dietary supplement available today. CTF contains a synergistic blend of herbs, essential vitamins, minerals and amino acids, thymic and other glandular extracts, antioxidants, enzymes and whole food extracts. This remarkable product is designed to provide a solid foundation of nutritional support while making available factors that nourish and strengthen immune function. CTF uses an advanced absorption technology to maximize the absorption and assimilation of nutrients, which are selectively delivered at the right time and place along the digestive tract- recognizing that fat soluble nutrients are optimally absorbed along a certain section of the digestive tract and water soluble nutrients along another. The spray/freeze dried materials are hydrolysated (made water soluble) for optimum absorption. The food factors have a natural coating that protects them in the acidic environment of the stomach, making them available in the small intestine where most absorption takes place. The vitamins and minerals in CTF are gluconated or chelated (attached to protein) to ensure maximum bio-availability. This reduces the amount of undigested ingredients eliminated through bodily waste, a common problem with low cost vitamin/mineral supplements. These statements have not been evaluated by the FDA and should not be construed as a claim for the cure, treatment or prevention of any disease.

white blood cells count
This study analyzes variation in WBC among participants in the Health, Aging and Body Composition study (Health ABC). First, white blood cell (WBC) counts are compared among African Americans and European Americans in the study, confirming a significant difference. These population-based differences in WBC are also described in literature as differing significantly between different African populations, Caribbean populations, Central and South American groups, Asian populations and Europeans (Bain et al., 1984; Saxena and Wong, 1990; Bain, 1996; Menard et al., 2003; Hsieh et al., 2007). Ancestry informative markers are used to estimate the individual ancestry of the African Americans in the study. There is a significant association of low WBC with a higher proportion of African ancestry. An admixture mapping approach is used to identify a novel locus [independently identified in a separate admixture scan in the Jackson Heart Study (JHS)] that influences WBC levels. The peaks of association in both studies localize to a region ∼0.9 Mb centered on the Duffy Antigen Receptor for Chemokines gene (DARC [MIM 110700]). Second, the functionality at the DARC locus is determined by investigating associations between DARC and neutrophils, lymnphocytes, monocytes, basophils and eosinophils. This investigation shows a consistent genetic effect at this locus associated with all of these differential cell types. Third, the association of DARC with all marrow derived cell lineages and red blood cell levels is evaluated. It is shown that, in addition to known associations between the DARC gene and malarial resistance (Miller et al., 1976; Livingstone, 1984) often associated with red blood cells, the DARC gene is also associated with WBC levels (Nalls et al., 2008). Selective pressure at this genetic locus may be related to its effect on WBC that may have contributed to the fixation of the FY-allele in some populations.
