Figure 2.

Kaplan-Meier survival curve with respect to the pattern of the neutrophil fluctuations. There was no difference in survival comparing the 3 patterns, namely elevated-returned to normal, elevated-stayed elevated and never elevated. Group 1 = (green dashed line) Ever Neutrophilia = 1; Back to Normal = 1; 81.2% 21 day survival, Group 2 = (red dashed line) Ever Leukocytosis = 1; Back to Normal = 0; 81.8% 21 day survival, Group 3 = (blue dashed line) Ever Leukocytosis = 0; Back to Normal = 0; 74.7% 21 day survival.
