Harrison, K. L. (1979) Aust. Paediatr. J., 15, 96–97. Fetal erythrocyte lifespan. The demonstration of fetal erythrocytes in the maternal circulation by the Kleihauer technique after feto‐maternal macrotransfusion provides a means of measuring the lifespan of those cells produced at the time of the haemorrhage. Two cases of massive feto‐maternal haemorrhage at 40 weeks gestation and one at 36 weeks gestation are used, together with a published case at 34 weeks gestation. to show that… 

Dynamics of hematologic parameters and of the erythrocyte deformability index at the juvenal period of rats and guinea pigs

In experiments on Wistar rats and guinea pigs, dynamics of blood hematological parameters and of erythrocyte deformability index (DI) was studied from birth to the 3-month age, and like in the case with rats, DI had a close correlation with the ery Throcyte parameter of shape (Omin).

A review of neonatal jaundice

There is a requirement for accurate total bilirubin measurement from <100 to >500 μmol/L, with sufficient precision to assess the rate of bilirubsin change with time, to identify those infants at risk of jaundice.

Video evidence demonstrates that human erythrocytes take active part in blood bactericidal action and can repeatedly engulf and kill bacteria of different species and size.

Phagocytosis and oxycytosis: two arms of human innate immunity

Phagocytosis by leukocytes in the tissues and oxycyTosis by erythrocytes in the bloodstream are the main bactericidal mechanisms of human innate immunity.


In ABO incompatibility, if jaundice develops, it remains in physiological limits, so prevention of aggravating factors is very important, in case of ABO and Rh incompatibility.

The feasibility and cost of neonatal screening for prenatal alcohol exposure by measuring phosphatidylethanol in dried blood spots.

Results indicate that screening for PAE in DBS cards is a feasible procedure and that a majority of infants have enough blood after the routine heel prick to fill an additional card, and that screening by PEth analysis from DBS Cards is cost-efficient.

Hyperbilirubinema is Treated Using L.E.D Phototherapy for Neonatals

The aim of this project is to create a LED phototherapy circuit unit having high competence, low thermal emission, and for extended term usage than other phototherapy methods.

Association of ABO and Rh incompatibility with neonatal hyperbilirubinaemia

In ABO incompatibility, if jaundice develops, it remains in physiological limits, and in presence of some aggravating conditions may present as pathological jaundices, which results in significant morbidity but no mortality.

Maternal Steller sea lion diets elevate fetal mercury concentrations in an area of population decline.



Determination of erythrocyte survival in newborn infants by means of Cr51-labelled erythrocytes.

The apparent reduction in erythrocyte life span during the second and third months of life in both premature and full-term infants ma reflect an older ery throatcyte population resultant from decreased erythropoiesis in the first weeks of life.

The findings suggest that studies of the intrauterine haemolysis do not always give true indication of the degree of foetal anaemia, and that the haemoglobin concentration is not always a reliable index of the rate of ha Hemolysis.

STUDIES ON ERYTHRO‐KINETICS IN INFANCY:XIII. The mean Life Span and the Life Span Frequency Function of Red Blood Cells Formed during Foetal Life

Equations were developed for the relation between the production rate, the life span frequency function and the number of circulating erythrocytes and the relative number of circulate cells after random labelling.

The Effect of Maternal Smoking on Cord Blood Erythroeytes

A highly significant increase in mean corpuscular volume in the infants of smoking mothers was observed which did not appear to be related to the number of cigarettes used, and a possible mechanism for this is postulated.

[Demonstration of fetal hemoglobin in erythrocytes of a blood smear].

Obwohl fetales menschliches Hamoglobin von bleibendem Hamoglobin in vielerlei Hinsicht betrachtlich differiert, konnte man es bisher nicht in einzelnen Erythrocyten kenntlich machen. Alle

Massive feto-maternal hemorrhage as a cause of perinatal mortality and morbidity.

A review is given of the various theoretical and practical problems related to massive feto-maternal hemorrhage, the causes and pathogenesis, the symptoms and diagnosis, the clinical varieties, and the pathophysiology as seen in the fetus and newborn.

Rh-immunization by Pregnancy: Results of a Survey and Their Relevance to Prophylactic Therapy

A series of Rh-negative primiparae has been studied in order to gain further insight into the process of immunization by pregnancy, and there is evidence of a direct relation between the count of foetal cells after delivery and the risk of developing antibodies.
