Decreased osmotic fragility of red blood cells of Eimeria adenoeides-infected turkeys.

Abstract

The osmotic fragility of red blood cells (RBC) from Eimeria adenoeides-infected turkey poults was compared with that of RBC from control and water-deprived poults. At different hypotonic NaCl concentrations, lysis of RBC from infected poults was 10 to 35% less on day 4 postinoculation (PI) and 50 to 65% less on day 7 PI than that of controls. Red blood… (More)
