monocytes
Explanation:
It is difficult to know for sure without further context, but most likely this refers to monocytes, and less likely to mononuclear cells (which include the monocytes)

The Spanish translation should be "monocitos". I redacted my explanation for "mono cells" in English and the English term stuck (monocytes).
