Immature platelets (IPFs), which are hemostatically more active than mature platelets, have been found elevated in essential thrombocythemia and polycythemia vera, 2 myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPN) characterized by an increased risk of thrombosis. It is not known whether the IPF levels are influenced by pathogenetic factors, including JAK2V617F(More)
BACKGROUND Natalizumab is a monoclonal antibody that significantly reduces the occurrence of relapses in relapse-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS) patients. Early papers on the clinical use of natalizumab in RRMS patients reported erythroblastemia as occasional and transient. OBJECTIVES to determine the prevalence and absolute count of erythroblasts(More)
One of the most promising technique for the in vitro expansion of cord blood (CB) hematopoietic stem cells (SCs) seems to be their co-culture with stromal feeder-layers. Hence, we developed and immortalized by retroviral transduction with the temperature-sensitive SV40 large T antigen three new human cell lines, two derived from bone marrow (HM1-SV40 and(More)
Intraoperative transfusion of red blood cells (RBC) is associated with adverse outcome after LT in adult patients. This relationship in pediatric patients has not been studied in depth, and its analysis is the scope of this study. Forty-one variables associated with outcome, including blood product transfusions, were studied in a cohort of 243 pediatric(More)
BACKGROUND Different hematological analyzers have different analytical performances that are often reflected in the criteria for sample stability of the complete blood count. This study aimed to assess the stability of several hematological parameters using the XN-9000 Sysmex and BC-6800 Mindray analyzers. METHODS The impact of storage at room temperature(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate analytical performance of Sysmex UF-1000i for peritoneal fluid analysis. METHODS Functional sensitivity, imprecision, linearity and comparison studies were performed on peritoneal fluids. RESULTS Total imprecision was 1.6-4.7%, functional sensitivity 27/μL for white blood cell (WBC) and 32/μL for total nucleated cell (TNC) count.(More)
BACKGROUND Although optical microscopy (OM) remains the reference technique for analysis of ascitic (AF) and pleural (PF) fluids, novel hematological analyzers are equipped with modules for body fluid (BF) analysis. This study was aimed to analyze the performance of XN-BF module in Sysmex XN-9000, and to develop validation rules for automated cell counts in(More)
Flow cytometry is widely used in many laboratories for automated nucleated cell counts and their differentiation in body fluids. The implementation of new reflex testing rules on these automated instruments could open new frontiers in laboratory workflow, improving characterization of body fluids and clinical diagnosis and decreasing costs. Ascitic (150)(More)
BACKGROUND Current haematology analysers have variable sensitivity and accuracy for counting nucleated red blood cells in samples with low values and in all those conditions characterised by altered sensitivity of red blood cells to the lysing process, such as in beta-thalassaemia or sickle-cell diseases and in neonates. The aim of our study was to evaluate(More)

INTRODUCTION Recent automated hematology analyzers (HAs) can identify and report nucleated red blood cells (NRBC) count as a separate population out of white blood cells (WBC). The aim of this study was to investigate the analytical performances of NRBC enumeration on five top of the range HAs. METHODS We evaluated the within-run and between-day(More)
