Hi bioforumers

I know it is not the right place but I did not know where to put this

I know that the percentage of t cells is about 60-70% in blood but I need a paper or some books for citation

Another question is that we used to say B cells and T lymphocytes/ cells, when I write T cells my doctor erase it and write lymphocytes, why?
my doctor is on leave so I can not ask her.

many thanks and appreciated for help

As for the first question, this info should be citeable from a normal hematology or immunology textbook. Also, this looks like something that would be in the introduction part of a review on that topic, so all in all there should be no trouble to find a reliable source.

Regarding the second question, well, "lymphocytes" is a more specific and precise scientifc term than "cells"...

Il dort. Quoique le sort fût pour lui bien étrange,
Il vivait. Il mourut quand il n'eut plus son ange;
La chose simplement d'elle-même arriva,
Comme la nuit se fait lorsque le jour s'en va.

Perhaps the figures you are quoting refer to lymphocytes in general and not T lymphocytes specifically, so that is why she has corrected you?

T cell or T lymphocyte is more specific.

Lymphocytes include B cells and NK cells also.
