Detection of reversible and irreversible changes of erythrocyte osmotic fragility induced by Yoshida tumor cells in rats.

A coil planet centrifuge (CPC) is an apparatus for the dynamic measurement of erythrocyte osmotic fragility, and it was applied to the observation of altered erythrocyte osmotic fragility induced by Yoshida tumor cells. The osmotic fragility of erythrocytes directly collected from the vein passing through the site of tumor inoculation began to increase from… (More)
