nadir

(nā′dĕr) [ME. fm. Arabic]
1. A low point in any measurement.
2. The lowest concentration of blood cells (esp. white blood cells) found after taking a drug that suppresses the bone marrow. The term is usually used for the low blood cell counts that occur after cancer chemotherapy. When the absolute neutrophil count reaches a nadir below 1000 cells/mm3, the risk of life-threatening infections increases dramatically.
