[The physicochemical and physiological aspects of the erythrocyte sedimentation reaction].

Abstract

Despite frequent use and long history of the measurement of the erythrocyte sedimentation rate (ESR) in clinical practice the coherent theory of this process is still lacking. Analysis of the "aggregation theory" of red blood sedimentation in tubes is performed. This theory claims that erythrocytes in resting blood aggregate due to adhesion provided by… (More)
