Red blood cell inclusion will increase of erythrocyte sedimentation rate
The author proposed the mechanism that reduce the erythrocyte sedimentation rate in splenectomized thalassemia and further imply for other conditions with inclusion body in red blood cell. Expand
Hematological status of β-thalassemics in Madras
The present study is the first report of hematological status of β-thalassemia among this ethnic group particularly from Tamil Nadu, Southern India, who are still practising high degree of consanguinity. Expand
Whole blood viscosity in beta thalassemia minor.
Blood of a group of normal and beta-thalassemia minor subjects was examined with a microporous viscometer to elucidate further the relations between whole blood viscosity, HCT, and red blood cell count. Expand
Screening for thalassaemia using the width of the Technicon H6000/H601 erythrocyte size histograms.
The red cell distribution width (RDW) calculated from the data of an erythrocyte size distribution (ESD) histogram generated by a Technicon H6000/H601 blood cell analyser was shown to be not suitableExpand
The erythrocyte sedimentation rate time curve: critique of an established solution.
It is shown the curve of these authors to result from a mathematical error in their analysis, and the need to accommodate cell aggregation in models of the ESR is reaffirmed. Expand
Rheological Properties of Erythrocytes in Heterozygous and Homozygous β Thalassaemia
It is suggested that the decreased fluidity of haemoglobin as well as the presence of inclusion bodies result from the excess of α chains in erythrocytes of homozygous patients. Expand
