Although the morphology of the hematopoietic and circulating blood cells of the rat differs slightly from that of human blood cells, the basophil is the only human blood cell for which the rat does not have a readily recognizable counterpart. The morphological classification of the rat's marrow and peripheral blood cells as based on our experience is described with reference to the differing observations of previous investigators and with comparison to the human hematopoietic system… CONTINUE READING
