The composition and morphology of peripheral blood cells during hibernation were studied in five species of bats of the order Chiroptera: Myotis daubentonii (Daubenton’s bat), M. brandtii (Brandt’s bat), M. mystacinus (whiskered bat), Plecotus auritus (brown long-eared bat), and Eptesicus nilssonii (Northern bat). It is noted that these species are characterized by a low level of leukocytes and the prevalence of neutrophils over lymphocytes in the leucogram. Interspecific differences in the… Expand

FIRST RECORDS OF BAT PARASITES IN KARELIA
First data on parasites from bats (Chiroptera) in Karelia are presented. Bats were captured at hibernacula in Lahdenpohsky and Sortavalsky Districts of Karelia in March 2010 and February 2011.Expand
Dynamic Function and Composition Shift in Circulating Innate Immune Cells in Hibernating Garden Dormice
TLDR
Major differences are found in the neutrophil oxidative burst capacity (NOC), with shallow cell responses during torpor and a highly significant increase by up to 30-fold during arousals, which might have clinical relevance in the context of therapeutic hypothermia and reperfusion injury. Expand
Персонализированные подходы к назначению триметазидина в качестве цитопротектора у пациентов с ишемической болезнью сердца
TLDR
According to this in vitro analysis, the trimetazidine significantly increases the cell (WBC) viability in 60% of patients with CAD, which specifies an individual pharmacodynamic target for the cytoprotective action of the drug. Expand

[SPECIFICITY OF CONTENT AND MORPHOLOGY OF PERIPHERAL BLOOD CELLS IN THREE BAT SPECIES OF KARELIA DURING HIBERNATION].
TLDR
A higher content of lymphocytes, eosinophils and basophils was revealed in the northern bat featuring an increased resistance to cold as compared to the Brandt's bat and the brown long-eared bat. Expand
Haematological parameters of pond bats (Myotis dasycneme Boie, 1825 Chiroptera: Vespertilionidae) in the Ural Mountains
TLDR
With age, the number of erythrocytes and the haemoglobin level increase, but the leukocytic chain remains relatively stable, and changes in haematological parameters were observed in the bats caught in the season of preparation for long hibernation. Expand
The Resistance of a North American Bat Species (Eptesicus fuscus) to White-Nose Syndrome (WNS)
TLDR
Findings indicate that big brown bats are resistant to White-nose Syndrome, and are not significantly different in length from those previously reported for this species. Expand
Seasonal changes in blood cells and biochemical parameters in the Mongolian hamster (Allocricetulus curtatus)
TLDR
It was found that a reduction in circulating white blood cells occurred in winter and bilirubin levels increased in spring, which makes Mongolian hamsters closer to the true hibernating species. Expand

1. Hematological parameters in the male and female bats differ only with respect to number and volume of erythrocytes: larger number of smaller cells found in males corresponds to smaller number ofExpand
Hibernating Little Brown Myotis (Myotis lucifugus) Show Variable Immunological Responses to White-Nose Syndrome
TLDR
Overall, bats hibernating in WNS-affected sites showed immunological changes that may be evident of attempted defense against G. destructans, and lowered antioxidant activity indicates a possible imbalance in the pro- versus antioxidant system, may reflect oxidative tissue damage, and should be investigated as a contributor to W NS-associated morbidity and mortality.

Blood cell dynamics during hibernation in the European Ground Squirrel.
TLDR
The data show that the leukocyte count drops dramatically after entrance into torpor and that euthermic cell counts are restored within 1.5h after onset of arousal, even before body temperature is fully normalized. Expand
Age related variation in the energy costs of torpor in Daubenton's bat: effects on fat accumulation prior to hibernation
TLDR
The hypothesis that differences in the accumulation of fat between age classes may reflect in part differences in expenditure as well as differences in food intake, but the contribution of differences in metabolism during torpor are relatively small is supported. Expand
It takes two to tango: Phagocyte and lymphocyte numbers in a small mammalian hibernator
TLDR
Results of this study clearly reveal that the leukocyte picture of active edible dormice responds sensitively to physiological conditions associated with hibernation, reproductive activity and food availability and can be linked to fitness parameters such as survival. Expand
Hematology of a hibernating rodent - the northern birch mouse
TLDR
During the period of winter hibernation an increase takes place in the number of red blood cells, hemoglobin concentration and hematocrit value, while the numberof leukocytes and neutrophils as well as the number and percentage of eosinophils decreases. Expand
